Some people may know how to make a shutdown virus, but not many people know how to send them through MSN or E-mail.
This will show you how to make and send them.
My next Instructable will be how to Over-ride a shutdown if you get one of these sent to you.
Step 1: Creating The "Short-Cut"
First go to your desktop and "Right-Click", now click "New". You will get a list, click "Short-Cut".
A box should come up as shown.
Step 2: Creating The "Short-Cut"
shutdown -s -t 20 -c "Type a message here"
The code above will force a shutdown on the computer in 20 seconds with a message given.
replace "Type a message here" with a message that will come up on the victims computer, but leave the quotation marks =)
-s = Shutdown
-f = Force shutdown (Optional)
-t = Time
20 = 20 seconds (replace it with anytime, such as, 00 05 10 20 , as long as it has two digits.)
-c = Comment
Step 3: Naming And Changing The Icon
Now you should be able to name the file.
Name it something that you think your victim will click on, such as "Pac-Man".
once you have made the file right click it and select "Properties", and then find "Change Icon...".
Click it, and then click "OK".
you will have a list of file icons.
You can choose from any but I personally choose the file icon.
Once selected click "OK".
Now click "Apply" and "OK".
Step 4: How to send the file!
BUT you wont be able to send this over MSN or E-mail.
To do that you will have to once again Right-Click and click "New"
and then select "Compressed (zipped) folder".
Now drag your actual Shutdown folder we prepared earlier and drop it into your
You now have a shutdown file ready to send!
This is harmless and you can try it on yourself! Just make sure you dont have any important work up that you havent saved =]
