  1. Please don't ask for help circumventing security restrictions put in place by your employer. These things are done for a good reason.
  2. anyone? its not my employer its my high school

    We do not assist with that, even after the fact. It's not your computer, we are not going to help you screw it up deliberately.

    What business? I wasn't aware that we got paid
  8. I'm going to give you some advice, Highschool is a joke. Don't fret over it. So you did something you shouldn't have, slap on the wrist. You're better off just handing it in "as is" then trying to cover it.
  9. ill just take some stuff out of my hardrive and put it back together and say it stopped working
  10. The fact is that you likely shouldn't have altered the system and were supposed to be bound by an agreement to change the system files and could be liable for damages, if they see fit. If your school was smart, they would understand what you did was something most students might not know or want to do, but you still broke protocol. But, if you were smart enough to figure out how to 'fix' it the first time, perhaps you are smart enough to 'fix it back' now. My guess is that you Googled how to do it and don't know how to revert it.

    Sorry- forum rules prevent us from assisting in this matter.
