    there is a easyer way you just download error mesage gen for free!

    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.

    For one minute, you say "-t 01"? That's one SECOND... for one MINUTE, use "-t 60"

    i cant find a good icon (one of internet)

    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
