Default Need help from any student with computer lab access

If you go to a shcool with a computer lab I would like to see if you could check on something for me. The school MUST run MS Windows or Vista. I'd like to discuss this in PM but I'll tell you here that I will let you in on a pretty cool and useful secret if you help me out. You don't have to break any type of rules or anything, there is nothing that will get you in trouble. I have done this many times at my college - long ago - but no longer have access. I'd appreciate any responses! Thank you.

Check on what? You seem to have left that out.

Why a school lab?
It's likely one of us pro's on the forum has a lab or three. Let us know what you need and maybe one of us can help you.

... Vista is a part of "MS Windows", so your redundant statement is a bit redundant.

My guess, is it's someway to gain access to the other machines in the lab.

If there are no rules being broken or anything, why is it a secret?

It's probably a little-known way to do something on controlled networks.

A lot of schools use a company called RM to manage the networks (they have on-site techs employed by each school, but RM usually supply things like servers and software etc - it's quite neat actually), and I suspect it's a way to elevate privileges on that from a student level account to, say, teacher level or admin level.

I'm actually a programming user so I can run executables (muhahaha) on our network, which is probably a nightmare for our techs!
