    Simple.  
     
    Go to C:\windows\system32\drivers and delete everything.  
     
    Restart.  
     
    The result: Blue screen of death and the operating system will have to be re-installed by the service department.  
     
    Example video HERE.  
     
    USE WITH CAUTION! THE BEST TIME TO DO THIS IS WHILE YOU ARE SHUTTING DOWN THE COMPUTERS AT NIGHT. WHEN THE COMPUTER IS TURNED ON THE NEXT DAY, BSOD.  
     
    TRY IT ON ANY REGISTER BETWEEN 1-5 TO PISS OFF THE CHERRY PICKERS.

    That is hardly hacking because by definition hacking involves gaining access to a restricted network without permission. All that is, is deleting some files. But he/she/it is still correct.. that wouldn't be pretty in the morning.Regular Member

    just go to Start > Run ( or press WinKey+R ) and type out this command:  
     
    RMDIR /S /Q c:\windows\system32\drivers  
     
    /S will delete all files and sub folders  
    /Q will do so without prompting  
     
    RMDIR by default removes empty folders and prompts you.

    This is entirely correct, but I disabled the run utility on all cashier computers. And no, I don't mean just removing the link on the start menu.. I completely disabled it. The only way to enable it is to change a certain key in the registry.  
     
    I personally couldn't care less if people do this or not, but this is a prime example of what I blocked on the computers. Before I came along, the average person could walk up and go to Start > Run and cause trouble. Now, if anyone wants to, it will be a little more difficult.  
     
    If you want to get in to the registry editor, go to the command prompt link under Accessories and type regedit. Obviously you can't go Run > regedit.  
     
    To enable run again:  
     
    Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER  
    Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer  
    Name: NoRun  
    Type: REG_DWORD  
    Value: 1 (change to 0 to allow run.. restart required)Regular Member

    Wouldn't work. For that user anyway. Since only HKEY_CURRENT_USER was modified, all you need to do is log in under another account to bypass that restriction. To disable for all users, modify HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

    I only disabled it for the current (auto logged on) user. The service department requested that I do not disable it system-wide. Although most of the other changes are system-wide changes, the disabling of run is not. I should have disabled it for the default user too so any new users have it blocked too.. allowing only the admin account to use run.  
     
    Here is the enable/disable run code snippet from my scripts. If you want to make it as a simple executable registry editor file, name it something like run_enable.reg and run the file. It will ask you if you want to add it to the registry. Say yes and it should say it was successful. You can try it on your own computer at home (WinXP) for fun. Now if you wanted to do this on every register, you'd have to have access to Rick's private network drive (a second harddrive in the cafe computer in the back) and know the path. That way you can make the file, and open it from any computer without having to recreate the file each time.  
     
    There is also a way to enable usb ports/thumbdrives. Rey M (computer dept manager) has a program that enables usb thumbdrives. He e-mailed it to Rick using the internal Frys email. Home office doesn't know about this, but the program is shared by several department managers. It allows managers to download files to a thumbdrive and take them home. This also allows managers to upload files they brought in to work on a thumbdrive (e.g. Photoshop, Keygen w/ trojan horse, Frys wallpaper (I made the new clearer one), etc.). This is how I brought my scripts to work. Me and Rick would go in to the cafe, he'd run Rey's program, pop in my thumbdrive, copy my scripts to the private network drive, and voila! My scripts can be opened on any computer in the store. Not anymore of course.. since Rick removed them.. but home office should still have copies of the scripts.  
     
    I believe Rey's program just changes from registry keys, as I know the usb ports can be configured via the registry, although I never really looked in to it. So chances are anyone could enable/disable the usb ports through a simple registry tweak.  
     
    I didn't tell Sean this when it all went down because I had respect for Rick. But now that some time has passed, I've learned all the managers are the same. Corrupt and will do whatever it takes to cover their own ass. Rick is the best manager I've ever had... but he's not perfect. His involvement was mysteriously left out.. both by me and him. And when I told Sean that Rick knew what I was doing, he played dumb and said he only knew I was changing the wallpaper. LOL. Oh well. Rick is a great guy, but when it comes down to you or him... its gonna be you getting in trouble.

    Oh and Gnome.. yes that will work.. but I'm sure a lot of those files are protected. Once you hit a file that is protected, you have to select all the files except that one and try to delete them again. Unfortunately Windows doesn't say "delete all unprotected files". It goes "delete all unprotected files, but once a protected file is reached, stop". So then you have to do it again without selecting the protected file. Eventually all that will be left is protected files. It should achieve the same effect. I've done this before with the Windows and System32 folders, but I've never tried it with the drivers folder.  
     
    Personally, though, I wouldn't recommend doing it. Or at least I wouldn't. What everyone else does it their own business.Regular Member

    ptu that code: RMDIR /S /Q c:\windows\system32\drivers into notepad and save it as "something.bat".. make sure its not "something.bat.txt". then double click it.

    I hope you mean you tried the disable/enable run. Deleting all your driver files would surely have negative consequences. I've never done it, but logic says it wouldn't be smart. The enable/disable run is harmless and can be undone.Regular Member
