    psexec the browser, followed by
    Code:
    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=I+love+barbie
    or depending on your web filter, something else :twisted:

    Alternatively, watch their PC with VNC or similar, and just as they go to click something, move the mouse. If you do it subtly enough, they won't realise.

    You could also shutdown their PC (shutdown.exe -m \\computername -s -f -t 0 works best for me!) 5 minutes before the end of the lesson.

    A fake BSoD is always good, if you don't have IE7, do one in HTML, then you can launch the window full screen (with some javascript), with a custom cursor which is transparent and set it as their home page!
    Setting the BSoD error message to TOO_MUCH_PORN is an optional extra :twisted:

    Make a script to pop up a dialog box when the kid logs in asking if they wet the bed.
    If they click "no", force a log off.
    When they click yes, play a WAV that says "THIS BOY WETS THE BED"

    God I love the whole "screwing with people from a remote location" aspect people seem to forget we can do.

    You could change their display name in active directory to something silly, (like 'Pink Flowers') it comes up at the top of their start menu.

    Monitor via Ranger Remote Control, and do the subtle moving of the mouse can be extended to taking control and writing something random in the middle of their work, nothing insulting, but somthing witty.

    Change their password, then when they come to you asking for it to be changed cos they can't log in, set it to an impossibly long and complex word. Have fun watching them try and type it in, and extend the fun by setting the 'cannot change password' option. Scientific dictionary is a must for this activity.

    Re: how to get back at annoying students

    sometimes the simple ones are most effective, but i do like the mind games too. try this one:

    change their password to "IDONTKNOW"

    when they come to get it reset, tell them you have done it.

    then when they ask you what it is, just tell them!!!

    For a member of staff, who was trying to "make a point" about something had his homepage set the Muppets Home - Muppet Central Fan Site for a week, fortunately he saw the funny side and point making ceased.
