Hello, and welcome to the Instructables community! It's great that you've decided to tell the world about something you've made by publishing an Instructable. We just wanted to let you know that your project still needs a little more work if you want it to be well received on Instructables. Projects that don't include certain basic elements tend not to get the attention that they deserve, and so we'd love for you to check out the list below of what makes a successful Instructable. Successful projects on Instructables include: - clearly written details of a finished project with instruction - as many steps as are necessary to explain your project - clear images that you took of your project for most, if not all of your steps - an intro image - proper spelling and grammar - appropriate cautions or safety considerations I'll give you another opportunity to make any final changes to your project before we publish it. Once you're all set to go, please republish your project and send me a quick comment letting me know that you've made some changes. I'll give it a quick final check to make sure you're on the right path, and then remove this note. Thanks for your submission and we hope to see your project published soon!

I fixed up the instructable. I think it is better now. Thanks

I fixed it up and added more screenshots. Hopefully this will clear things up.

 This is nearly the same as rick rolling someone...

yah,my bro sends me those sites all the time,and sometimes it is called: YOU GOT RICK ROLLD'

This Could Be called YOU JUST GOT ROCK ROLLD'

i did this and we had just had a virus so it was still fresh in everyones mind, it slipped my mind at the time though so i pulled this prank, my mom thought we wre having another virus and she freaked out and got ready to wipe the hard drive again. but she didn't because i told her what happened, but she told my dad, brother, and sister who all had basically the same reaction she did.

Does this work for internet explorer?

It will work, it will just be harder to change it back, since the page moves around all the time. Unless you quickly navigate away, you can't fix it.

I found some thing similar to this, http://www.epicwinrar.com/ has the same type of thing. I'm not telling what prank it is though
