The easiest way to this would be to have a floppy disk with stuff,
copy this to the cdrive, make an icon "click me" pointing to "that stuff"
(aka regini, regedit, format, fdisk etc) and then watch the next person 
clicking  it ....... and the shopkeeper storming to that poor person .....

or make a set of shortcuts reaplcing the real ones on the hardisk
that point to different programs:

 * shortcut of explorer points to del *.*
 * shortcut of word points to fdisk
 * you get the hint

Knowing that any silly idea will be tried once people can read them
I already have a grin on my face....
