Two Steps Back: Make the back button go back twice—not every time, but only on random instances.

The Devil's Inbox: Make the number of unread email in your victim's Gmail inbox exactly 666.

5. Use NetSend to give out authentic looking popups that display your message: All you need is netsend and your Victim's IP. Here's one person's prank 
A good prank that I have played on some friends involves the net send command. What I did was I used the net send command to send a message that said "Microsoft has detected that you have a small penis. Please consider upgrading for better performance" to other people on my local network. When you use the net send command in the command prompt, you specify the computer you want it sent to by typing the computer name, it also says on the message which computer it came from, so I changed my computer name to Microsoft, so it appeared, to the technically challenged, that the message actually came from Microsoft. In case you were interested, the syntax for the net send is:
net send computername message
