Good prank for an XP computer?

I need a good prank to pull on my brother for his birthday tomorrow. I know this sounds juvenile, but I need a good laugh every once in a while. Well, he has an XP computer in his bedroom as sometimes doesn't lock his computer.() So is there any good pranks or ideas I can do to scare him from the computer?

The timeless classic:

Take a fullscreen screenshot of his desktop and set that pic as his wallpaper.

Move the taskbar to a different location and set it to autohide.

Then remove all the desktop icons. (cut and paste into a folder for quick retrieval later)

Sit back and laugh.

Go in and turn his screen upside down and put something funny on it.

Add a folder and call it something like "horse porn" then take the screenshot, for good measure.

A faster method of hiding the icons is right click on the desktop and go to View and uncheck "Show Desktop Icons".

What if you set the auto play settings to always launch a shutdown batch file every time any CD was put in the drive. That'd pretty funny. Cruel for gamers though XD.
