Prankster replaces the mark's desktop image with a screencap of said desktop, while removing all desktop icons. After repeatedly clicking on the screencap icons to no avail, the mark is convinced his computer is hosed.

There's nothing like April Fool's hi-jinx to highlight the disparity of computer experience between users within any given organization.
