In trouble with the admins
Just wondering, has anyone ever got themselves into trouble at work or any other place for messing with the computer setup?
I know you shouldn't, but who doesn't occasionally surf the net, or try to install something. It just seems I took it a bit far today :p
I was bored today, and messing around on my work pc (I have a 'debugger users' account in Windows, so I can generally mess with stuff). Anyway because there is a problem with my internet access, I decided to rename my computer to see if it was being blocked by its name by any chance. They have a naming convention there for the pcs (mine is 'DSK00012') so I went ahead and changed it to 'ZX81' lol. Anyway it asked me for an admin username/password, so I put in someone elses. Within 15 minutes, this other guy had recieved an email from IT telling him to put his computer name back to how it should be! lol :p He came around asking if anyone had used his account, so I said yeah, and we had a laugh about it but now IT have to come out tomorrow and put my pc right because they couldn't even access it remotely because I have killed the remote access service :p I have also completely customised the thing the way I would have it at home. I spent most of the afternoon deleting and uninstalling all the crap from it, so yeah i'm looking forward to tomorrow :D
edit: forgot to add, how the heck did they notice the name change within minutes of it happening? IT scare me sometimes...
