How to Remotely Shutdown/ Restart/ Logoff any Computer (Prank)

I DO NOT recommend doing this at school. First off, you can get yourself in to big crap if you do.
Second, Administrators block cmd.exe so you can't do stuff like this.(Easy to pass though. They already have a bunch of Instructables on how.)

Also, I dont know if this is considered hacking or not, so only do it to people who wouldn't care.

Now that I am done being Mr. Strict, the boring old normal teacher, lets get started!

Step 3: The Fun Part

Ok, once you get back to your computer, you should wait until you know your victim is on his/her computer. Run cmd.exe on your computer (Wow, you can do a lot with Command Prompt, huh?). Type in (Without quotes):

"shutdown -i"

This opens up a window called Remote Shutdown Dialog. Click on the "Add" button and type in your victim's IP adress (Yes, you can prank multiple victims at one time.). Click OK and choose what you want to do to thier computer (Shutdown, Restart, Logoff) If you want to rub it in thier face, check Warn Users of Action and set the time that it will take for them to save thier stuff. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE PLANNED BOX!!! If you don't it can mess up thier computer (Well, they can when it turns back on.) And if you really want to rub it in thier face, you can add a comment like: "Haha loser you just got PRANKED!!! You have exactly 20 seconds to save your stuff! What an idiot!!". You know, someting really sutle and light.

Nice one,
But try this:
1) Open Notepad and type:
@echo off
echo.
set /p vic= Enter the IP of your victim :
shutdown -m \\%vic% -r -c "You R just H4CK3D. Sucker. Shutdown in 20 secs. HA HA...." -t 60
echo Victim Hacked....
pause
exit

2) Save it as anything.bat.
3) When you run it, it'll ask for your victim's IP. Enter it and you are done.

It's not perfect, It's just v1.0, v2.0 will come soon.
Have fun.

bro not working ip is 100% correct

It seems I made a mistake there. A lot of times the IP address might not work so you have to enter the hostname of the pc.

Sorry for the mistake.

is there no way to get the IP without going to the persons computer, cus it is a bit obvious in the middle of class randomly going over to a persons computer and do this?

go onto command prompt and type in netview

it will list all of the pcs connected to your wifi and show you the IP ( assuming that all of your school computers are connected to the same network)

Umm problem whenever I try this it says. Access is denied <5>

Please help!

You need to get onto the other persons pc and enable some services and settings so that their pc will accept any remote commands. Here is how to some instructions on how to solve the access denied problem:

1.) Go onto the victims PC, click start and type in services.msc into the search bar.

2.) locate the service called remote registry and right click on it and then select properties.

3.) go down to where it sayes startup type and set that to automatic

4.) then go to control panel and type firewall into the search bar

5.) click the "allow a program through windows firewall" option

6.) locate the Windows management instrumentation program on the list and check the box to the left of it so that it is enabled.

7.) restart the victims pc and you will be able to shut them down.

Enjoy!

Just use the tracert command to trace a websites IP instead of actually getting to the computer
