    u need 2 type how long it takes after entering the trap for the computer 2 shutdown.

    0MG! N0w 1 c4n b3 1337 h4xorz. thnks dude!! This is not a hack. Look up the origin of the word "Hacker". When people still used Typewriters, a hacker was someone that constantly hacked at the keys of the typewriter. This is not a hack, nor a virus, or a Trojan, or a Worm. This more of a shortcut to shutdown.exe.

    How do i configure my pc in such a way that it will always shutdown when i turn it on and only me should know that i have to run a "shutdown -a". so that even when am forced to turn on my pc, it will keep shutting down until i run the abort shutdown..pls advice!!!!

    Put your shortcut in Start Menu\Programs\Startup and give it a longer time delay - say, "shutdown -s -f -t 20" - just long enough for you to open Run and put in "shutdown -a". Just remove all quotes from the above!

    How do I activate this Wirelessly?

    I bought a wireless Transceiver Package and Was wondering I can interface this with the db-9 port so that when I connect some form of a circuit within the port, it opens this shortcut.

    I'm new to programming and am mostly focusing on micro controllers.

    Any keywords to research or advice would be perfect,
    Thanks

    Nothing happens?

    Thank you so much for this! I now have a revenge tool against my brother AND a defense for my personal stuff (I put a folder that said "personal files" that shuts down the computer instantly). Is there a way to switch around icons on different programs? That'd be extremely helpful
