Step 1: Make the batch file

I made a batch file to imitate the blue screen, just copy and paste this to notepad and save it as bluescreen.bat

@echo offcd /clscolor 17echo A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damageecho to your computer.echo.echo The problem seems to be caused by the following file: SPCMDCON.SYSecho.echo PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREAecho.echo If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,echo restart your computer. If this screen appears again, followecho these steps:echo.echo Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.echo If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturerecho for any Windows updates you might need.echo.echo If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardwareecho or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.echo If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restartecho your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and thenecho select Safe Mode.echo.echo Technical information:echo.echo *** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFD3094C2,0x00000001,0xFBFE7617,0x00000000)echo.echo.echo ***  SPCMDCON.SYS - Address FBFE7617 base at FBFE5000, DateStamp 3d6dd67cpause >nulclsecho Downloading viruses . . .ping localhost -n 5 >nuldir /spause >nul

Step 2: Send to desktop

Picture of send to desktop
Find it in all files by going to notepad > file > open > change Text Documents(*.txt) to All Files > find bluescreen.bat and right click it > send to > desktop (create shortcut).

Step 3: Disguise it

Picture of Disguise it
Right click the bluescreen shortcut icon on your desktop and rename it to Internet Explorer > exit > right click it again > properties > change icon > change it to the internet icon > apply > exit. Now it should look like Internet Explorer but when someone clicks on it, the blue screen of death should popup.

Step 4: Make it run full screen

Right click on the disguised bluescreen shortcut we made > properties > layout > add a 0 to the width and the height under Windows Size > apply > goto the Font tab > make the font the biggest > apply > exit.

this version displays a fult in system32.dll and then scans for viruses. hope u like it

to use copy every thing between the code tags in to a file called bsod.bat
wtf??!?!?! it dosnt work

To Make It Full Screen, Make A Shortcut Of It Then Right Click>Properties And Click Options And Selcet Full Screen. Then Goto Colors And Set Pop-up
And Screen Text Wight And Pop-up And Screen Backround Blue. Then Apply
And Check It Out. Note: This Dosent Work On Vista

it wont work at all
Same here. It starts a command prompt window, but it closes almost instantly and does nothing.

I'm sure i copied the text correctly.

Although this did inspire me to make an abort shutdown shortcut; very usefull when people try to remote-shutdown me. : )

And wtf is that thing at the end about 'downloading viruses'?
BogdanV5 years ago
To make it real full-screen (ALT+ENTER), you could instead of going to Layout, go to Options->Display Options and check Full Screen. This should make it cover the entire screen without the window border appearing.
the window will appear on vista but its translucent so only a trained eye will catch it
My system does not support fullscreen for CMD.
How do I get it to say "Downloading viruses" and have it show all the files under the other stuff?
insert an "echo" command like this [echo downloading viruses] whereever you want that text to appear. on the next line, type [ cd /d c:\ ] without the brackets. next line is tree, which lists every folder in the c drive.  the code should look like this:
echo Downloading Viruses...
cd /d c:\
tree

press "F8". The button for safe mode.

Sadly it seems that lately Instructables has seen a lot of this sort of crap appearing. Is there anyone that can explain to me how this could be useful or educational. Because this is just 12 y/o 3V1L H4x0rzzz internet pollution...
i hate knex guns
Millons of `em.
I'm not sure these even count as script kiddies- script kiddies at least do something other than use user-mode features and often cause some sort of damage to systems by "hacking" them. This is the computer equivalent of putting plastic wrap over the toilet seat, and I think there needs to be a word for this phenomenon, other than "irritating pranks". Beyond that, perhaps there needs to be a section of the site where all the "fake virus omg lololol" 'tibles can be put, along with the knex guns :) or an end user script that hides anything with the words "fake virus", "computer pranks" etc. in them.

yeah they need to make a place for all the repeated crap on here, like k'nex guns and laptop stands
