PC PRANKS.....


  1. Unclick-able desktop

    Allright, this one is really old but sometimes users will not know what happened. Just make a screenshot of your desktop by pressing "Print Screen" on your keyboard (sometimes shown as "Print Scrn"). Now go to Paint and Paste (Ctrl+V). You should now have an image of your desktop. Save the image to your PC (not on your desktop) and save it as BMP. You'll now have the file like this: C:/Desktop.bmp.
    Next, right-click on your desktop and select Properties. Select the tab Desktop and click Browse... Navigate to your screenshot and press OK to set it as your background. You're almost done now.
    Right-click your desktop again and navigate to "Arrange icons by" and uncheck "Show desktop icons". There you have it, the icons on the desktop can not be clicked anymore.
  2. Desktop upside down

    Do you still have the image from the previous prank? Open it again in Paint. Now rotate the image (Ctrl+R) and set it to 180 degrees. Save to file again as BMP, like this: C:/Potksed.bmp.
    Now set the image again as your background and there you have it: Your desktop is turned upside down. But wait: The taskbar at the bottom is still there? Right-click on it and select Properties. On the Taskbar tab, select the Auto-hide the taskbar check box. Press OK to save the changes.
  3. Strange sounds

    A PC has some build-in audio files that are played when doing something. For example, when you start navigating you'll hear a "click" and when you disconnect a USB device you'll hear another sound. Change these sounds into something that you want!
    First, search on the internet for the correct audio file (Example: Farts, Screams etc.). If the file is in MP3 format, convert them to WAV. Save the WAV files to C:/WINDOWS/Media/.
    Now go to Start > Settings > Control Panel and double click on "Sounds and Audio Devices". Go to the tab Sounds and look for the correct sound in the list that you want to change. Change it by selecting the event and clicking on Browse... Navigate and select your new WAV file and press OK to save.
    Be creative and your prank will succeed, just like this startup sound prank.
  4. Boogieman

    Normally, WAV files are played with Windows Media Player. In this joke, you don't want this to happen. We'll write a VBS-file (Visual Basic) in this joke that will run audio files that you can't see.
    Open up Notepad and copy the following code:
    strSoundFile = "C:\WINDOWS\Media\[YOURSOUNDFILE].wav"
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    strCommand = "sndrec32 /play /close" & chr(34) & strSoundFile & chr(34)
    objShell.Run strCommand, 0, False

    Change the [YOURSOUNDFILE] to the sound file you want to play. Now save the file to your harddisk, like this: C:/Sound.vbs. Double-click the VBS file to try if it works.
    You probably want to play these files automaticly. You can do this by creating tasks. Go to Start > All programs > Accessories > System Tools > Scheduled Tasks. A new window will appear. Double click on "Add scheduled task" and follow the instructions. Select your VBS file when the wizard asks if you want to open a software application. You want your PC to scream at 4 AM?
  5. Shortcuts changed

    Pretty corny joke, but still one that can drive other users insane. Shortcuts are nothing more than files pointing to other files that they should startup. For example, if you have a Windows Media Player shortcut on your desktop, right click on the shortcut and select Properties. The Target will be something like:C:/Program Files/Windows Media Player/wmplayer.exe. Change this line into another one, like C:/Program Files/MSN Messenger/msnmsgr.exe for MSN Messenger. Press OK to save the changes.
    Probably the icon will have changed too. No problem about that, you can change that. Right-click the shortcut and select Properties. Choose the Shortcut tab. Click on the Change Icon button and navigate to your previous program, such as Windows Media Player. Click "Open" to select the file and press OK to save.
  6. Format C:

    Formatting is what users are very afraid of. Go to RJLSoftware and download FakeFormat. The title is self-explaining: It'll look like as if you're formatting your PC. Additionally, the creators from this program disallow the functionality of shutting down. Double trouble!
  7. "The Finger"

    And while you're still at RJLSoftware don't forget to download The Finger. This little program will change your cursor into another finger and you'll already have guessed which one it is. Make sure you check the command line options. Place the EXE file in de startup folder of your PC and wait untill other users find out.
  8. Haunted DVD-/CD-Player

    Software can have control over hardware. If you used Nero, you'll probably noticed that, when you're done coping a CD / DVD, the CD / DVD will be ejected automaticly. Why not make use of this function? Go to cd-eject-tool.com and download the program. The specialty about this program, is that you can create shortcuts that directly drive the program. Create a shortcut that opens the CD / DVD drive and put it in the scheduele and wait for your victim.
Good luck setting up these pranks!

OVERCLOCKING

What is Overclocking?
Overclocking is a cool way of making your CPU, video card (monitor card), 3D accelerator and some other kinds of hardware run faster and give better performance for free! (Intel's worst nightmare! MWHAHAHAHAHA!!!)
During this tutorial I will teach you how to overclock your CPU, but you can use this information to overclock other kinds of hardware on your PC.
Now, your CPU speed is based on two factors - your BUS(2) speed and your clock speed
EXAMPLE
The BUS speed on older computers (let's take a Pentium I 166MHZ(3) as an example) is about 66MHZ. 166, the CPU speed, divided by 66, the BUS speed, gives you about 2.5, meaning your clock speed is about 2.5.
Simple, huh? BUS speed X clock speed = CPU speed.

Now, what exactly is overclocking and how do I do it?

Materials

1. The little booklet you were supposed to received together with your CPU.
2. A screwdriver (better be a Philips screwdriver).
3. A metal plier with a rubber/plastic handle or a bunch of fingers (better be your fingers... oh, and when I said a bunch of fingers, I've meant at least 5, all of them attached to a living hand (better be yours). Undeads are also welcome).
4. A calculator / a brain.

A) Open your computer using your trusty screwdriver.
B) Look at the little booklet you have and find the part about the jumpers(4) board and read.
C) Use the plier or the fingers to change the jumpers array so you will receive the clock speed you are interested in. Oh yeah, and try not to step on your CMOS chip(5) or on your Cache chip(6).
  
Note: newer CPUs are "Clock Locked", meaning you cannot change their clock speed, but you can still change their BUS speed... ;)
Changing the BUS speed is similar to changing the clock speed (read the part on your booklet about the jumpers).

Speeding up Firefox


Here’s a configuration tip that enables Firefox to download Web pages faster:


enable HTTP pipelining. 
 HTTP pipelining allows Firefox to send multiple requests at the same time, resulting in faster loading times for Web content. 
 HTTP pipelining is an experimental feature and can cause some Web pages to display incorrectly if they’re not properly supported by the Web servers.


While the speed improvements may be worthwhile, if your favorite Web pages start to look weird, try turning pipelining off again.


To enable pipelining, open the about:config interface and: Set the network.http.pipelining preference to “true” to enable HTTP pipelining for Web access that’s “direct connect.”  Set the network.http.proxy.pipelining preference to “true” to enable HTTP pipelining when the Web is accessed via a proxy server. You only need to do this if you’re using a proxy server; your ISP or network administrator can tell you if that’s the case or not.



 Set the network.http.pipelining.maxrequests preference to a number between 1 and 8. This number is the maximum number of requests that Firefox may send out at any one time in a pipeline. I recommend it be set to the maximum of 82 initially, then test working backwards from there. Step the value down by one (first to 7, then to 6, and so on) each time you notice the page display


having problems.

IP SPOOFING

By using this trick you can change your IP Address in Less then a minute
 

1. Click on "Start" in the bottom left hand corner of screen
2. Click on "Run"
3. Type in "command" and hit ok

You should now be at an MSDOS prompt screen.

4. Type "ipconfig /release" just like that, and hit "enter"
5. Type "exit" and leave the prompt
6. Right-click on "Network Places" or "My Network Places" on your desktop.
7. Click on "properties"

You should now be on a screen with something titled "Local Area Connection", or something close to that, and, if you have a network hooked up, all of your other networks.

8. Right click on "Local Area Connection" and click "properties"
9. Double-click on the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" from the list under the "General" tab
10. Click on "Use the following IP address" under the "General" tab
11. Create an IP address (It doesn't matter what it is. I just type 1 and 2 until i fill the area up).
12. Press "Tab" and it should automatically fill in the "Subnet Mask" section with default numbers.
13. Hit the "Ok" button here
14. Hit the "Ok" button again

You should now be back to the "Local Area Connection" screen.

15. Right-click back on "Local Area Connection" and go to properties again.
16. Go back to the "TCP/IP" settings
17. This time, select "Obtain an IP address automatically"
tongue.gif 18. Hit "Ok"
19. Hit "Ok" again
20. You now have a new IP address

With a little practice, you can easily get this process down to 15 seconds.

P.S:
This only changes your dynamic IP address, not your ISP/IP address. If you plan on hacking a website with this trick be extremely careful, because if they try a little, they can trace it back.

Permanently Block Time-Wasting Web Sites

Is there a web site that‘s utterly toxic to your mental state or ability to work? 
Maybe you grind your teeth over your ex‘s web log, which details every moment of her happy new life without you. 
Maybe you‘ve lost hours of your life trolling eBay auctions and you simply can‘t impulse-buy another autographed Neil Diamond record.
Perhaps online backgammon can snatch away hours of your day at the office. 
The preceding hack describes how to block time-wasting web sites during certain times of the day and week. Alternatively, you can block sites at all times, until you explicitly release the restriction. This hack fakes your computer into thinking that those problem sites live on your hard drive — which obviously they don‘t — and forces a Server Not Found error when your fingers impulsively type out that tempting, time-sucking URL. Here‘s how.

For Windows :-
1. Using Notepad or some other text editor, open the file named hosts,
this is located in the following directory: Windows XP and Vista: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC Windows 2000: C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC Windows 98\ME: C:\WINDOWS\
2. Add the following on its own line in the hosts file:
127.0.0.1 Ebay.com games.yahoo.com evilex.com
Replacing the sites listed with the domains that you want to block.


For Mac OS X :-
1. In Finder, from the Go menu, choose Go to Folder. 2. In the Go To Folder dialog, type /etc/. 3. From the /etc/ folder window, open the hosts file in a text editor. 4. Add the following on its own line in the hosts file: 127.0.0.1 Ebay.com games.yahoo.com evilex.com Replace the sites listed with the domains that you want to block.

The Result
After you‘ve completed the steps for your operating system, save the hosts file and quit your editor. Now when you visit one of your blocked sites, you get a Server Not Found error.

The "Healthy" Cigarette

Now smokers can smoke everywhere theaters , airports , malls , and all public places as E-cigarettes are launched.

The revolutionary device feels like a cigarette, acts like a cigarette - even the tip is a red led light which illuminates as you inhale, and functions like a cigarette- with one big difference. There is NO TAR, NO TOBACCO, NO HARMFUL SMOKE, and NO CARCINOGENS. This is not only great news for those concerned about the health effects or smoking for them or those around them, but it also means that these electronic cigarettes can be smoked anywhere, without any bans.

The picture below explains its working :-



 If you are a chain smoker then you should switch to E-cigarettes because of its harmless character.

Bypass blocked websites............

NOTE-:This trick works in Firefox only

1. Find the IP address of the website you would like to access:
(I will use Google.co.in as our example.):
For this go to CMD and type -
ping google.co.in

Google.co.in IP = 74.125.91.104

Take notice that there are 4 different numbers each separated by a period.

2. Convert each number into an 8 digit binary value. You can do so by using the windows calculator, setting it to scientific, and then pressing the DEC option. Type in your number (74) then press the BIN option and it gives you the 8 digit binary value. Now record this value and continue this process with the other 3 numbers.

01001010 01111101 01011011 01101000 (This is the binary values of the above IP)

3. Now take the above binary values and convert that into a 32-digit value. Notice how there are 8 digits in each binary value.Well 4*8 = 32. Simply remove the spaces from the above number and you
get your 32 digit value.

01001010011111010101101101101000

Now
we are at the final step. To access your blocked website, you must
convert the 32 digit value into a decimal value. This mean that you
will need to turn the number above into something that looks like
123,456,789 (just an example) The converted number does not need to be of specific length.

4) The number you get when you convert the 32-digit value is 1249729384.

If you have done this correctly, go to your web browser and in the address field type in http://1249729384 It should take you to google.co.in
