Step 1:

1. Open up any word processing program. Notepad is what many people use.
2. Type in "start", and press enter
3. Type in your filename.bat
4. Save your document as filename.bat
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 a simple, yet nasty prank, it doesn't run automatically.

That is, unless you make it autorun...

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.

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