Step 3: Preparing to Deploy

This will work only if the computers being used (including the victims) have net send enabled. This is easy, but remember that you need Windows XP computers for the prank to work. You might already have net send enabled, in which case this step can be skipped. You may want to check, however (see the bottom of this step).

Keeping that in mind, we will open up Run on one of the computers. You can do this by either hitting both the Windows key (the key with the Windows logo on it) and the "R" key, or by going under "Accessories" in "All Programs" in the Start Menu. When the Run bar comes up, type in "services.msc". (Of course, without the quotation marks.) Hit enter. A new menu should come up with a list. The list is in alphabetical order, making navigation easy. Find where it says "Messenger". Right click it and select "Properties". Where it says "Startup Type", put "Automatic". Exit out.

Repeat this for all the computers. You'll get fast at it with practice.
To check if a computer already has net send enabled, open the Command Prompt. It can be opened either by typing "cmd" into Run, or by clicking on it in "Accessories". Now type "net send /?" (again, without the quotation marks). If it responds with information about the command, then it is already enabled. If it responds by saying that "net send is not a command", than net send is not yet enabled.
Try this;<br>(Opens up file explore forever)<br>:Hi<br>explorer<br>goto &quot;Hi&quot;<br><br>Save as .bat file and run!!
<p>It keeps giving information on the command, not opening popups</p>
<p>That means that you're not using the command correctly. Please post your input</p>
<p>@ echo off</p><p>:start</p><p>netsend * Hi Lol</p><p>goto start</p>
<p>Would a MAC spoof allow you to go undetected using this method?</p>
<p>Depends on network. Some will reject the connection. Even if it works, they can ban the mac address, use a dhcp (and thereby ban the ip), or just ban the name of the pc outright. There are many ways to get caught. Just don't do it.</p>
whats the chance of getting caught like having it traced back to your computor
&nbsp;&nbsp; There is a 99.999...% chance of this being traced back to your computer's IP. The real question is whether the computer you use can be tracked back to you. If you are on a public network, then the chance is slim. If you're using a school computer, and are logged in under your name, then there is little chance of you getting away.<br> &nbsp;&nbsp; It depends therefore on if the computer is traceable to you, and if so, how competent security is in your situation.<br>
<p>I know this thread's pretty old. Another thing is that even if you use a guest account, if they have any brains, they would just use the security cameras to see who was using the computer. If there are no cameras, then they can just ask the people who were sitting near you if they remember who was sitting there. </p>
<p>what if you do this on a school network through a personal computer</p>
terrible here. They wouldn't let me switch the keyboard layout to dvorak even when I asked nicely
<p>well, if they see you</p>
At my school they let us bring USB drives and plug them in.<br>My first thought of what to put on the drive was an autorun file and a VBS or Batch file. ;)
<p>will421 that is a great idea, thank you! I am going to take one of my stupid flash drives tht only have half a GIG and i will add an Autorun file in there with some crappy viruses! I am even going to make some really creepy cirus that will ask the user questions and if answered incorrect it deletes an important file or spam opens itself or opens everything on the desktop!</p>
<p>how about that we think of something that will make every1 I know freak out??</p>
<p>AlexK125 Cool idea dude, it is handsome and so are ya!</p>
<p>Sorry for those spelling errors, i try to be professional :P</p>
<p>same. i have a ton of self made &quot;viruses&quot; that i keep on one. my first one was basically a degraded version of this that requires you to manually open the bat file.it was like this.</p><p>@echo off</p><p>:top</p><p>start notepad.exe</p><p>goto top</p>
<p>Is there a way to do this on windows 7 or later versions</p>
<p>I just need to know that you're 100 percent sure They can't know who caused it.<br>Thanks for the post though, I needed it to make the school library a bit more fun</p>
<p>There is definatly NOT a 100% chance you won't get caught, if the tech room is smart they will know how to trace it! Just scroll up a but and find my comment then you can read up on how to avoid getting caught!</p>
<p>How do i stop the virus on my computer if i am the host and am connected to the network</p>
<p>You could Hard Shutdown the computer. Or do you mean that you want it to stop while it does it to everyone else? If that is the case you cannot not stop it on your PC otherwise it would stop for everyone else. It makes it better anyways because people see it happening to you and so they don't suspect its you!</p>
<p>This is unrelated but still in the field</p><p>can i enable autorun on a windows seven computer</p>
<p>If you want this to Autorun you have to get into the Startup Folder, Click the start button and start typing &quot;Startup&quot; it would find a folder nammed startup, just drag the file into that folder and then when the xomputer is powered on and someone logs in it will automatically launch that file and nobody will know why for the longest time until the tech department figures it out.</p>
<p>Hey There People Of The Internet! I got some info for this topic :)</p><p>1. There is a service that was enabled in older computers (up to XP) and it is what allowed the messenger to work. Although this may not automatically be enabled when you get a personal PC/Laptop it may work at the school since they enable services that would allow them to do certain things with the School Computers.</p><p>2. There is a small chance that you could get caught...most school computers have a guest account though so log into that and don't login to anything that would help them figure out its you. </p><p>3. There is a way to set this up with Task Scheduler but its pretty tricky to do so since you need Administrative Permissions</p><p>4. If you get caught you could get introuble for freezing the computers unless you say this &quot;I was downloading an .MP3 File and a window opened and said i need to download the better quality file and it downloaded a file and when opened it freezed my PC&quot; when i get home i will even make a quick website that does that and it fakes an .MP3 so you guys have evidence...</p><p>Anyway, your welcome for this information. Make sure to email me or add me on skype for further information</p><p>Email: ackruger400@gmail.com</p><p>Skype: EnderBoy898</p><p>See ya!</p>
<p>LOL!! killed da school computers</p>
<p>you actually did it? i put it on a thumbdrive and am saving it for blackmail</p>
<p>Combine this with task scheduler to nuke networks from multiple computers at the same time and frame people! *insert evil face here*</p>
<p>The &quot;Messenger&quot; isn't coming up for me in there, please help.</p>
<p>Hey.... Can you tell me if you can net send from windows XP to windows 8 or 7?</p>
Hi, I want to know that after I have injected to all the computer than how am I going to delete this virus???
is there a way you can do something like this, but instead of just sending a msgbox you can send another batch file? like... send this batch file to every other computer so not only does it get the boxes, but if you turn it off and then back on it becomes a host again? if they forgot to shut one of they would have to do it all over again hahaha and there are other files i could send that this method would help with too ;)
<p>Its possible but not with net send command </p>
It sounds like youre asking how to make a remote computer run your commands. That its moving from a funny prank towards malicious code. And, that would be difficult, as the whole point of firewalls is to stop that process. people do it, but not with batch, and not as begginers.
Hey, is it possible to add a picture file to the messages that get spammed?
<p>It is possible but its a lot easyier to track</p>
<p>yes there is</p>
Is there a way to do this with Visual Basic Script?
Yes. Either one can do this. The syntax is slightly different, though.
Do you know how to?
Thanks for enlightening one of our students minds with this! He did this on a network of around 200 computers, and we couldn't even find the computer that started it!<br /> <br /> LOL, but it was pretty funny seeing everyone freaking out that their computers wouldn't work. But we had to do a whole network reboot because it created a lot of overhead network interference.<br /> <br /> We have since stopped and removed the messenger service from all our computers :)<br /> <br />
You are very welcome! That is exactly what I want to hear: someone using it. I'm especially glad that it worked as planned. I have to admit that I never tested this myself.<br />
&nbsp;Is there any way to send this in an email. &nbsp;so when the user opens the email and clicks a link it will run and possibly auto create as a startup program if so could you tell me how
