Step 2: Run or Install Script

Running the script on your 'Victim's computer is the hardest part of this entire prank.  I have named the script 'cdupdt' as it is easy to notice when I'm looking for it.  You could name it whatever you want, the sneakier the name the better.

If you can get access to their computer for even a few seconds, you can run the script once and then it will never happen again (Unless you change up the timing in the code).  The script will not run any windows, or anything in the task bar, the only item you can see is an entry in the Process Manager as 'wscript.exe'.

The ideal situation would be if you had a bit more time than someone getting up to go to the photocopier:

1) On most computers there is an icon for 'My Computer' on the desktop, Right Click and go to Explore.
2) If you navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup then put the script in that folder, every time the computer is loaded into windows the script will run.

could you maybe post an overall example for us noobies? sorry to waste your time.
On his birthday!
LOL!! Ok, i'm gonna do this to my dad!
it is normal that the script use 50% CPU.<br>is there a way to make it use less CPU power<br>so it's not noticeable?
i have to try this with my friend's PCs <br>thanks
Welcome.BTW..how does one make it open severally.as in a given time frame.or just explain the time part<br />
The way it generates the amount of times it opens is configured statically below.<br /> <br /> Dim theRandom<br /> Dim count<br /> ' Randomize a number then turn it into minutes<br /> while (count &lt; 3)&nbsp; <strong>The number 3 is how many times it will open, <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; if you change that number it will run the open more times</strong><br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; theRandom = RandomValue()<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Pause (theRandom * 60)<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; OpenCDRom<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; count = count + 1<br /> wend<br /> <br /> <br /> Function RandomValue()<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; dim theRandom<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; dim ubound<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; dim lbound<br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; ubound = 99&nbsp; <strong>The ubound and lbound are (in minutes) how long it will take</strong> <br /> &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; lbound = 20 &nbsp;&nbsp; <strong>randomly for the drive to open (ubound has to be higher)</strong><br /> <br /> If you need anything else let me know!<br /> <br />
