Ooo, if I but had a little time. :-) Electronic pranks abound ( and no, I am not thinking of shock boxes, jackintheboxes, etc, but more elaborate things). For instance, I have (somewhere) the plans for making a real live working one bit memory using a vacuum tube (the prank is, what do you do with a one BIT memory?), but that might not be considered much of a "prank" to some.

I'm guessing the surprise package is an empty box? Perhaps a mirror? Oh!OH! I know I know............a little tiny guy that jumps out and starts throwing raw chunks or watermelon while balancing on a green unicycle and singing Oh Happy Days to the tune of a squirrel playing an out of tune ukulele made of cardboard? AND THEN THE GUY TAKES OUT A SUPA COOL NEX GUN THAT SHOOTS MONKEY FECES AND OLD BEATLES CDS THAT HE STOLE FROM A BURGER KING BECAUSE THEY CHARGED 3 CENTS OVER THE TAX BECAUSE THEY WERE SHORT ON CASH BECAUSE IT FEL ON THE GRILL AND NOW THEY SERVED IT TO PEOPLE IN EXCHANGE FOR MONEY AND THE PEOPLE ATE IT AND GOT SICK SO THEY SUED THEM CUZ THEY WENT TO THE BATHROOM A LOT CUZ THEYRE MONEY INTOLERANT WHICH IS WEIRD BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE I KNOW LOOOOVE MONEY. SO ANYWAY THE SQUIRREL GOT SICK FROM THE MONEY SO HE UNTIED WITH THE GUY TO RANDOMLY HIDE INSIDE WEBSITE CONTEST PRIZE BOXES AND THROW STUFF AT PEOPLE TO CALM THEI WILD AND CAUSELESS REBELION AGAINST SOCIETY!!!!! mONEKY fARTS!!!!!!

A computer-based prank is fine, but a virus implies it's just some damage.

Also, don't do the classic screenshot of the desktop and then hiding the icons. I think we already have about 10 Instructables for that already.
