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
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...

Just ran it with Sandboxie, had interesting results but I could kill it easily enough.

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.
