Getting Rid Of Games For Coworkers and Having Fun With It

So the boss man wants me to remove the pre-installed Windows XP games (solitaire, Minesweeper, etc...), but I was thinking instead of removing them, I should just overwrite the *.exe files with something obnoxious and leave the menus on the start menu, heck, maybe even put icons on the desktop to see how much time people are really trying to waste.

I know I'd have to work around Windows File Protection to overwrite some of the game files, but that's easy enough.

Anybody have any ideas? I'd love to have some fun with this. Something that would track the clicks, keep a report on people trying to run the game, email management, offer a blackmail buyout option if said employee doesn't want management to see that he or she have been trying to play, etc... .
