    Haha... got another one!

    Pretty soon you'll have it installed on every one of the computers at work. Slowly first, like the ones you work on... Then some of your coworkers... till it ends up on your boss' boss' computer - and you'll never know how it happened.

    It's already installed on the owner's personal computer, and I've set it to run as a process and always hide the icon on the task bar

    That's how its done... Who knew you could get the bug so fast! This might be a record...

    Just don't get in trouble... Better to miss a few computers than to give WCG a bad rap. Nice work though.

    I am having the idea of installing it on every computers in the classes that I have. That's like 100, but the computers are slow-ass pentium 3s. And I do not know how to run it when it's logged out

    I still didn't install it on all the computers in Dads workplace. Just got 2 working for now.

    First of all - make sure you're allowed to install it on them!

    And if you install it as a service it'll always run! (BTW - P3's are slow... but when there are 100 of them! That's some crunching power!)

    While installing, tick Protected application execution to run it as a service instead of a process

    And the boss won't find it, there are no shortcuts in the start menu, and I installed it to Program Files\Common Files
