    They would be a real virus!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you want to joke with a friend and change some icon to turn of the computer instead of opening Internet Explorer or something, do like this:
    1. right click on any icon at the desktop.
    2. press properties.
    3. in the target box write in "SHUTDOWN.exe -s -t 01"
    4. press ok and now your done
    when your friend press the icon next time the computer will shutdown in 1 minute instead of opening Internet Explorer. :D

    Or make the target of the icon on the desktop the place where the .vbs is.So,If it tries to open the real Internet Explorer,It will see the error.

    Look at the end of list.If you can't find it,Click browse then locate the Internet Explorer program at appdata (If you have hidden files enabled) or on the Program Files folder.

    look near the end of the list. It should be there. If you still can't find it, use one to make it look like it's some other thing that is used a lot! :3

    TIP-- Once yuo've created your new icon, you need to rename it. Right click on it, click rename and remove the ".vbs shortcut" part

    Now I want to know how to add icons to that .dll icon file

    I love this!!! Instead of copying X amount of times, you can change each line so long as each line starts with the lol = msgbox ("
    Like first line "Critical error......
    Second line is something like "What part of ERROR did you not understand?
    And so on and on and on
    Every time the OK button is clicked ( or even the "X" close button) a different sentence comes up

    Yeah you can. Add this to the .vbs script: Set oWMP = createObject("WMPlayer.OCX.7" ) Set colCDROMs = oWMP.cdromCollection if colCDROMs.Count >= 1 then For i = 0 to colCDROMs.Count - 1 colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject colCDROMs.Item(i).Eject Next ' cdrom End If Hope this helps!
