Putting a Mac out of order...

Hi guys. Is there a way I can put a mac (10.8) out of order? Some essential system files I can delete (and easily restore)? Thanks.

If they are easily restorable by you then they are easily restorable by anyone else.

I need to attack my father's Mac. He is a real noob, so he won't be able to restore anything, and he will call me for help
