Picture of Screaming Computer Shutdown
It's always fun to freak out people. Am I right?
Here's a way that you can easily scare people with their computer screaming as you shut it off.And its also pretty simple.

Step 1: The Scream!

Open any recording program that can save the file as (.wav). Record your scream and save it in a place where you can find it.

does it work with vista?
Once I saw the title i knew this would be coming. You can also do this when anything starts up or shuts down the same way.

if you could put a weird cartoon screaming face begging and bleeding to not shut it down as the computer turns off it would be a lot more fun.

I don't want to be rude....but this Instructables really doesn't seem necessary; besides the suggestion of using a scream audio, everything else seemed logical.

None taken. I mostly put it on because there are also some people who didn't know that you can customize your computers sounds.

Oh, OK. It's just that I've been seeing an abundant bs-Instructables lately. But your's was good and detailed, so was just wondering why would someone be so detailed on something i perceive as a logical operation.
I have done this before. Its great! Its really funny to do it to a friends computer and have a be a really sick disturbing sound track.
