I play a lot of Xbox live and always have to disable the internet on my computer because it hogs bandwidth. Mainly because I am downloading or uploading things all the time. The problem isn't shutting it off but it is turning it back on that I forget, making it to where I loose out on all that upload/download time.
So I decided to create a program to do it for me. I was going to write it in Vb.net but I just recently had to nuke and pave my operating system on my computer because of a bad storm frying my hard drive, and haven't reinstalled VB.net yet so I just figured this would give me a reason to play with vbscript.
I also made an image in paint to display in the background so i knew it was running.
Step 1: Figure out what you want to do.
What do I want the program to do?
A) I want to be able to open the script and it will automatically shut off the connection.
B) I want it to display a giant display in the background so there is no mistake that the internet is off, this way I don't forget to turn it back on.
C) I want it to give me a choice to turn it back on and then wait for a response.
D) I want it to make sure i turn it back on so i don't forget.
E) Then once I actually do say yes to turn it back on, the script turns it back on and then closes the background.
F) Exit everything.
