    For some unknown reason, some asshole at this school is resetting the Internet Explorer start page on the comp i regularily use to a site entirely unrelated to what we do at this school. Specifically, it's originally set to be Google.se, but this mofo is constantly replacing it whenever he/she uses this computer. Needless to say, this has gone out of hand and i am now forced to take serious action.

    This serious action involves writing a program specifically to reset the IE default start page upon startup (Windows XP). I can program, however i don't know where the information regarding the default startup lies hidden.

    If anyone can tell me that i'll be really happy :D

    Nope. He's doing it on purpose. I even left a message on the wallpaper.
    "Who the fuck is replacing as IE start page with www.blahblah.blah?!"

    He proceeded to replace my google.se with http://releases.static-subs.com/ and changing the wallpaper message to
    "Who the fuck is repalcing http://releases.static-subs.com/ with google.se?!"

    (http://releases.static-subs.com/ = not the actual url, obviously. The site in question is a swedish online youth community of sorts)

    You really need to ask your teacher who sits there and then repeatedly and brutally kick their ass every day after school until they stop

    Or

    Try dling Firefox and use it instead

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page...

    I that's what you are looking for..

    I once worked as the sysadmin in the Internet Cafe, and those bastards that always changed start page was pissing me off..

    you also can try experimenting with hosts file (c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) by giving google's IP to domain name of his site..
    It'll be fun when he'll try to visit his page, but will be always directed to google..

    and don't forget to set hosts file to "Read Only"..

    There's a lot of things that you can do to demorilize him..

    Uuhh... I'm sooo baaaad :xp

    BTW.. What r u using to write rpogramm?? I would recommend vbs, cause it's already inbuild in Win, and simple script file doesn't look too suspicious lika an exe...

    The user account is shared. There are no individual accounts.

    And thanks, above poster (yer name is boxes without jp support like on this comp). The hosts file was a good idea :p

    Just make a simple program that has a gay porno with sound and everything blasting, and requires a password to close.

    Just make sure that it is set to always on top, and cannot be moved. :thumbs

    That outta teach 'em a lesson!
