So, I have an account on a School Computer, and, unfortunately, the district has decided to lock them down. I would like to be able to do to thing, of which I am not allowed: Change my desktop background, and install programs, such as Gimp, that require administrator privileges. For the background issue: I am unable to access the desktop properties tab; it says: "This Operation has been Cancelled by and Administrator."
I have access to an MS-DOS prompt, task manager, and a few other things. I could give a Hijack This report, if neccisary. Safe mode is locked down. I have not tried yet booting from a disk.
Any ideas, tips, hints, warnings, or comments?
