  5. While women are scared to death of cockroaches men are most likely to hate spiders. Those 8 legged creatures can send shivers down their spine and if your boyfriend is one of those then this is the best prank for you.

However a little cute one will be enough.
  6. Guys keep their desktops cleaner than their rooms and thats a fact! Fill your boyfriend's PC desktop with random file shortcuts. Then copy and paste them until you have at least ten copies of each icon stacked on top of one another. Take a screenshot of your workspace (including all of the icons) and use it as your desktop backdrop. He'll be frustrated by all the icons at first, then he'll start removing them, which will work for a bit. He'll eventually lose the ability to pick icons because they're part of the background picture, and he'll be left with a cluttered desktop before you share your password.
