    I am in a pc repair class, we are at the portion of the class where we get to mess with each others computers. I want to take the admin accounts power away, then I want to unallocate all the excess space on the hard drive. Is there a program on this disk that will keep them from reassigning that space when they log in?

      It would be unethical for us to tell you how to do things of that nature which could have far reaching security issues. Even if you really do have the permission to perform it we have no way to verify that.
      Plan A is always more effective when the device you are working on understands that Plan B involves either a large hammer or screwdriver....

          No prob, I understand. I thought about that after I posted the thread, then I tried to think of ways to prove why I am doing it. Then i realized you telling me how in a post would be oout there for peoplee who did want to do other systems harm...

            I say dump the bios to file so you can reverse engineer it and modify it to be a minesweeper clone, then flash it back.

              This might be "cute" to play with, if you can put it on their computers and enable it as the screensaver:

              Be sure to "check it out" before you put it on their computers, though: B)

              It leaves the display in 640x480 and could be difficult to reset back to higher res,
              using Display properties, etc...

              (At worst, a reboot)

                I sometimes miss the 9x days when you could mess with people by setting shell=progman.exe in system.ini.. Would really freak out some people that had never used earlier versions and only knew the explorer shell..
