    Here’s a nasty but harmless trick to play on a friend — make their drives disappear from the My Computer folder! Or do it to your own system, if you simply want to get rid of some icons.

    In the Registry, work your way to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer. In the right pane, right-click and select New and DWORD value. When the value appears in the right pane, rename it NoDrives and double click on it to open its Edit DWORD Value window. Enter 3FFFFFF in the space provided and make sure Hexidecimal is selected. Click OK.

    The next time the computer is restarted, My Computer will have no drive icons in it.

    After your friend has torn out her hair, you can confess your prank and go back to the Registry to delete the NoDrives value. Reboot and everything will be back to normal.

    But we wouldn’t let your friend get her hands on your computer for a while.
