does anyone know a prank that is safe, you can send through msn and is very believable

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.
