Well it probably means that he's shittin ya, man. As far as I know, System32 contains the majority, if not all, of the drivers that Windows requires to run, as well as numerous important DLLs and other such files. It seems the prank has really been pulled on you

WRONG, if he's using Win98 than it hardly contains anything. System is the major container of drivers and stuff.

I noticed Win 95 had like no drivers in System32, but with XP, most drivers are in System32...

Not to mention Win ME and I think 2k also... Yet 95 and 98 (even SE), when installing drivers would ask for the CD... You can copy the cabs etc over, then you don't need the CD. Also remember you can always download drivers... Just putting in my 0.2 cents of driver info (looks in hand and notices... fuck it's only 1 penny, drops it and runs away).

windows does a search for drivers when it uses them first it searches for the 32bit drivers in system32 then it searches for 16bit drivers in system if it cant find the 32bit. So its not gonna totally fuck his shit up but it will downgrade it a bit which will probably be unoticable to him.

yeah...but the again...he just told him that without knowing wut the hell would happen.

renaming io.sys and/or autoexec.bat would stop this dude's PC from booting...but then again that's to simple and though-out...why not delete something called system...it MUST be important...

Fact is, you're a stupid dumb asshole for doing this prank in the first place. Someone had to say it...

heh, I personally wouldn't have done the prank cause it's not my style... but I do believe that gullible people are free-for-all. I have very little tolerance for stupidity and wish them the worst.

Even if I knew nothing about computers I wouldn't delete anything if somebody told me to over the internet. check that - ESPECIALLY if I didn't know shit about something I would trust anybody on say-so.

If he is this dumb, Then he would have done it in the windows GUI right?

Now there is a many a system file you can't just right click and delete. I'm at work now but can you delete system32?

I think this guy is just trying to look 1337.
