Introduction: A Small Computer Virus for PC(Vista) in 4 Easy Steps.

A small computer prank for pranks on a PC. It's nothing really harmful, just annoying. I'm not responsible for anything you do with this

Step 1: 1. Open Notepad

Go to the start menu search bar and search "notepad", then click on it.

Step 2: 2. Type or Copy This In

Type or CTRL+C this into the notepad text area.

Step 3: 3. Save It As a .bat

Click Save as on the screen and delete the .txt and put .bat and save it as whatever you want. I originally saved it as Open Fie, then I changed it to I dare you to open this. Oh, and save it to the desktop.

Step 4: You're Done!!!

Congradjulations, you just created your very first virus! It should look like something below in the photo. Remember, this is for educational purposes only, and should never be used on someone with malicious intention.

Yes. Just add it as a zip file and most e-mail services won't notice

.bat stands for batch file, it is a series of commands executed through command prompt, not a virus. However this can cause damage to the computer's cpu if you don't have a good cpu fan or heat sinks you could crash you computer, which also could lead to your computer dying. It's ok to do it a couple of times, just don't do it 100 times.

not to be rude but this only opens a certain amount of cmd windows what works best is this command

start (your files name).bat

(your files name).bat

then click save as...

and name it whatever name you put before the .bat in the command then .bat and whallah cmd windows of death

 How many times should it open?

author
short-genuis made it!(author)2010-01-17

 Every-time you type a "start" , it opens up a CMD window. So if you put 10 "start", it would open up 10 windows.

In step 3, you censored your name, but neglected to do so in step 4. Just a heads-up.
