But, imagine having a list of devil hacks you can use to punish people.
Maybe you are tired to solve others problems, or you want to have fun. If you are in either of these positions this is your post.
1. Cut access to Internet Web Pages.
You can cut internet from certain hours using the following post:
But if you just want to cut access to a Web, for example www.google.com:
Click on Start Menu, Accesories, look for Notepad, right-click and select “Run as administrator”.
Select File, Open…, and go to %SystemRoot%\system32\drivers\etc\ folder. Select open all files, you just add the following line and click save:
2. Disallow Software Installation
This technique will make it impossible to install any program by a user no matter if you are administrator or not.
Press Winkey + R, type services.msc and press Enter.
Look for Windows Installer:
Select Stop and disable the service.
Next time, you try to install something the following message appears, “The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed. Contact your support personnel for assistance.”
You can be even more evil and don’t let any user to change this property but at least for now is enough.
3. Send a message to recall who the boss is.
Why not recalling everyone who is the master? For this we are going to use only one command line.
First open a Command Prompt with administrator rights.
Type schtasks /st 12:00 /create /SC daily /TR “msg * I’m your boss” /TN taskname and press Enter.
Now the PC will recall at 12:00 everyday who is the person in charge.
4. Disallow a Specific Program from Starting
You can do this with parental controls, but it cannot be used for administrators.
So, how to not let someone with administrator rights start a program?
Press Winkey + R, type gpedit.msc and press Enter.
For this example we are going to limit the access to Microsoft Office Excel 2003.
Go to Local Computer Policy, Windows Settings, Security Settings, Application Control Policies, AppLocker, Executable Rules.
On the right pane, right-click and “Create default rules”.
Right click, and “Create new rule”, action: deny, select Path:
Next, select Browse Files, you can browse folders too.
You have to look for Microsoft Excel executable, now you only have to click next.
Next time the user want to start a program, the following message appears: “This program is blocked by group policy. For more information, contact your system administrator.”
5. Disallow File Removal
This disallows normal file removal. We are going to change the security setting so no one even the administrator can erase files.
Remember, you are the boss, so everyone has to know it.
Right click over the file and select properties. Go to Security Tab.
Click on Advanced, Change Permissions. Uncheck “Include inheritable permissions from this object’s parent”. If a Window appears select Remove, and press Ok. The following message appears: “You have denied all users access to <name of the file>. No one will be able to <name of the file> and only the owner will be able to change the permissions. Do you want to continue ?”
If you enter Windows will ask to change the permissions.
Just press continue and it will restore access to the user you are now logged. In my example is user, sorry for not being more creative.
Now, right click again over the folder, go to the security tab and select edit. Allow read and deny write for the user. Now an error message will appear when the user try to delete it.
Here is a list of names you can use for this file:
Just try to be creative.
