Fun IT pranks

Recommended Posts

For any of you guys that have control of an IT environment in the workplace, here's a fun one.

One of the more naive workers was on a bathroom break so I snuck over to his computer and changed his video rotation option to 180 degrees. The guy called me when he got back and explained his problem. I told him it must have been a virus from hitting porn sites and I had no time to clean his system until next week.

I walk by his desk and he has his monitor upside down.

Fun fun. Anyone have any other IT pranks?

Go into control panel and set their mouse double-click speed to it's highest setting. Makes it hard to register a double-click fast enough.

Disable their ability to log out of their computer remotely via the registry. They'll mess around for a good 15 mintutes trying to log out of their machine before they ask for help.

Worth a laugh, coz then re-enable it and walk over to help and tell them you don't see a problem.

Haha.
