    you could also right click any other icon and click properties. there should be a button that says "change icon". click on it and there should be a list of icons to choose from. pick your favorite and watch as someone falls into your trap! :D

    Or even better is to use powerpoint. Take a screenshot of the desktop first, open powerpoint and paste it to a slide, set the slide for neverending and ignore mouse clicks. He will see the mouse move but there is no effect on the screen until he hits escape, done this a few times, works good for a little while.

    The prank is more funny if you remove the original icons from the desktop, so when the person goes to click on them (because they're in your background image) nothing happens. I recommend hiding them in a folder somewhere instead of actually deleting them all, that'd be unnecessarily cruel.

    This is what I did to my computer to make it look cool using your idea. It basically adds a subtle reflection behind the original icons.
