Step 2: Fake icon

Now i am going to tell you how to make fake icons that will shutdown/ log off / restart the victims computer.

When you make this use a 60 or more second time limit so the user has time to save all open work as if you do not it may make them angry and not so much a prank but with a time limit they have nothing to lose and will find it funny after.

There is two ways to do this but the way i am going to show you is easiest:
How to do it:
1.Right click on the desktop in a blank space.
2.Select new.
3.Click where it says create shortcut
4.Where it tells you to type a location type in one of the codes below:

If you want there computer to shutdown type this in:

shutdown -s -f -t 60 -c "type a message you want to appear here"

If you want it to log them off type this:

shutdown -l -f -t 60 -c "type a message you want to appear here"

If you want it to restart there computer type this:

shutdown -r -f -t 60 -c "type a message you want to appear here"

5.Click OK and name it My Computer.

6.Right click on the file you just made and click properties and look for where it says change icon.

7.find the icon that is the same as the "my computer" icon

8.change the icon and wait for the victim to open my computer, then it will shutdown / log off / restart.

9.HINT: If you set the time limit to 0000 it will shutdown instantly, so they may think it was some els wrong with the computer and try again .......

What each part of the code does:
shutdown << this is a program that has three basic commands shutdown , log off , restart.
-s << this will shutdown the computer
-r << this will restart the computer
-l << this will log off the computer
-f << this forces all programs running to shutdown
-t << this is the time limit until shutdown (the time is in seconds so if -t 60 means 60 seconds )

P.S if you want to try this on your computer and the shutdown timer starts, to stop it in run type shutdown -a

<p>Hello. I have a question. I would like to make something like:</p><p>@echo off</p><p>&quot; Your pc have been infected. Sorry for deleting all your files. Have a nice day. &quot;</p><p>and then it will start opening random (just a lot) files. Can someone tell me the comand to open random? Or some way to open C: files and dont crash pc? :D</p>
<p>Try something like</p><p><em>&quot;echo off</em></p><p><em>start notepad.exe</em></p><p><em>start notepad.exe</em></p><p><em>msg * &quot;Your pc have been infected. Sorry for deleting all your files. Have a nice day.&quot;</em></p><p><em>start notepad.exe</em></p><p><em>start notepad.exe.</em></p><p><em>start notepad.exe</em></p><p><em>start notepad.exe&quot;</em></p><p>I just used it on a older PC so you might need to change the message type but this will open a finite amount of Notepads, if you want something else just add the file name with its execution .exe.</p><p>but if you want a infinite amount which is a little more harsh use </p><p><em>@echo off</em></p><p><em>:A</em></p><p><em>&quot;Your pc have been infected. Sorry for deleting all your files. Have a nice day.&quot;</em></p><p><em>start notepad.exe</em></p><p><em>goto A</em></p><p>This should make it loop forever to stop it the easiest way is to shut off the computer which if you want there is a few commands for that too! Have fun with this! :D</p>
<p>I made one that...might kill a person called 'Ay, I'm just doing my %random% job.';</p><p>@echo off</p><p>title API Hacker</p><p>echo API Hacker loaded.</p><p>echo Hit 'ENTER' to open the program.</p><p>pause</p><p>:p: </p><p>echo Ay, I'm just doing my %random%%random% job.</p><p>color 01</p><p>color 12</p><p>color 13</p><p>color 14</p><p>color 23</p><p>color 24</p><p>color 32</p><p>color 34</p><p>color 42</p><p>color 43</p><p>color 41</p><p>color 45</p><p>color 51</p><p>color 52</p><p>color 53</p><p>color 54</p><p>color 02</p><p>color 03</p><p>color 04</p><p>color 05</p><p>title Ay, I'm just doing my %random%%random% job..</p><p>goto p</p><p>start </p>
<p>The way it works, is that if you hit Enter, it will loop flashing colors with</p><p>echo Ay, I'm just doing my %random%%random% job.</p>
<p>So do the coding but then do this near the end :<br>:he<br>explorer.exe</p><p>goto he</p>
<p>If the way you use doesn't work it's:</p><p>:he</p><p>start explorer.exe</p><p>goto he</p>
<p>thnx! i'm gonna try it when i get on a pc!</p>
<p>When i click on the 'finished' shortcut, it logs off instantly even though i put a 60 second timer on it. i typed:</p><p>shutdown -l -f -t 60 -c &quot;message&quot; (I did include the quotes if im not supposed to, then that's probably my issue)</p><p>help? :P</p>
<p>When using shutdown do:</p><p>shutdown -c &quot;Your message here&quot; -s</p>
<p>Here's a cool locker that hides your files and locks it until u put a password in; without any downloaded software! save it as a batch file;</p><p>( with extension .<u>bat ) </u>change the <em>YOUR PASSWORD HERE</em> part in the 23rd line with any password you want.</p><p>Now you will see a batch file. Double click it to create a folder locker ( A new folder named Locker would be formed at the same location )Bring all the files you want to hide in the locker folder.Double click the batch ( As created above ) file to lock the folder. you will have an option. press capital <em>Y</em>.</p><p>cls</p><p>@ECHO OFF</p><p>title Folder Locker</p><p>if EXIST &quot;Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}&quot; goto UNLOCK</p><p>if NOT EXIST Locker goto MDLOCKER</p><p>:CONFIRM</p><p>echo Are you sure u want to Lock the folder(Y/N)</p><p>set/p &quot;cho=&gt;&quot;</p><p>if %cho%==Y goto LOCK</p><p>if %cho%==y goto LOCK</p><p>if %cho%==n goto END</p><p>if %cho%==N goto END</p><p>echo Invalid choice.</p><p>goto CONFIRM</p><p>:LOCK</p><p>ren Locker &quot;Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}&quot;</p><p>attrib +h +s &quot;Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}&quot;</p><p>echo Folder locked</p><p>goto End</p><p>:UNLOCK</p><p>echo Enter password to Unlock folder</p><p>set/p &quot;pass=&gt;&quot;</p><p>if NOT %pass%==YOUR PASSWORD HERE goto FAIL</p><p>attrib -h -s &quot;Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}&quot;</p><p>ren &quot;Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}&quot; Locker</p><p>echo Folder Unlocked successfully</p><p>goto End</p><p>:FAIL</p><p>echo Invalid password</p><p>goto end</p><p>:MDLOCKER</p><p>md Locker</p><p>echo Locker created successfully</p><p>goto End</p><p>:End</p>
<p>That looks correct to me, but try doing shutdown -l -t 60 -f -c &quot;message&quot;</p><p>I don't think that will fix the problem, but you should try.</p>
Try shutdown -s -t 60 -c &quot;what ever&quot; don't use &quot;&quot; lol what it does is shutdown -s tells it to shutdown -t 60 tells it to shutdown in 60 secs and -c tells it to say your message let me know if this helps
<p>This is great. I modified this and dropped it into a shared server on my office network and most of the employees fell prey to it. </p>

<p>This is awesome! a quick question though, can you make this for more updated windows computers, like 8.1?</p>
somehow it could not read my batch file
<p>Did you change the .txt to &quot;all files&quot; @ the bottom? If not, do that, then it'll work</p>
I only have the option of saving the code in Notepad as a txt file!
<p>Just name it ending with &quot;.bat&quot; (w/out the quotes) and it'll be OK :)</p>
<p>Change the .txt to &quot;all files&quot; @ the bottom</p>
set the name as anything.bat the name has to end with .bat
<p>To Jimmy 1: <br>you must change the .Txt file @ the bottom to &quot;All Files&quot;. then it will be able to change to a .bat file</p>
