Introduction: The Ultimate Fake Virus Via Notepad

This is TRULY the ULTIMATE FAKE VIRUS using Notepad in a Windows computer. This took me LITERALLY forever to make, and I hope you find ways to prank friends, teachers, you name it! This fake virus acts like it installs a video game, then "senses" a virus and tries to delete it. After a failed attempt, it says your data is at risk and it "deletes" the SYSTEM32 files. Then "someone" gains "control" of the computer and "hacks" your computer. Then it says that you got trolled. I am working on making it so that it will shut down the computer for those REALLY pesky friends and teachers. The whole shut down command isn't in this one, so I'll make another one for that. Here we go!

Step 1: Step 1: Creating the .bat (Batch) File

Well, first, what you gotta do is copy and paste this line of coding into Notepad. (It's in between the hashtags)

###############################################################

@echo off
title Free Call of Duty!
color B
echo Congratulations! We have randomly selected and YOU HAVE WON!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo "What did I win?" you may ask...
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Well, you have won a FREE Call of Duty download!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Would you like to download now?!
echo Type Yes or No
set input=
set /p input=
if %input%== Yes goto 1
if %input%== No goto 2

#################################################################

Explanations for each line of COMMANDS (not each line of text)

==================================================================

@echo off - This begins the .bat file.

==================================================================

title Free Call of Duty! - Change this to whatever you want (the "Free Call of Duty!" part) and this will name the Status Bar (what program you're currently in.

==================================================================

color B - This makes the font color a bright aqua/cyan. Change this from 1-9 and A-F. For a complete listing of color coding, refer to the end of this step.

==================================================================

echo Congratulations! We have randomly selected and YOU HAVE WON! - This makes the file say this. "echo" is a command for the .bat file to "speak" or write. You can change anything after "echo".

==================================================================

ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul - This part is probably the most important command throughout the fake virus. It pauses commands for about a second. Copy and paste these for as much time as needed.

==================================================================

set input=

set /p input=

if %input%== Yes goto 1

if %input%== No goto 2 - This is EXTREMELY important for your fake virus to work. It allows you to make multiple choice questions with interactive answers. Copy and paste "if %input%== (whatever) goto (whatever)" for as many choices required.

==================================================================

Color terms: 1=Blue 2=Green 3=Aqua 4=Red
5=Purple 6=Yellow 7=White 8=Gray 9=Light Blue A=Lime Green B=Bright Aqua (Cyan)
C=Bright Red D=Bright Purple E=Bright Yellow F=Bright White

Colors 9-F are all neon colors.

Step 2: Step 2: Section :1

This is the part where we begin the fake game download and fake virus detection. Copy and paste this DIRECTLY below Step 1's coding.

############################################################################

:1
Cls
color A
echo Thank you for downloading.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Downloading... 1%
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Downloading... 8%
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Downloading... 14%
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Downloading... 16%
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Error.exe.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Download has been paused.
pause
echo A virus has been detected. Do you want to delete it?
echo Type 1 to delete
set input=
set /p input=
if %input%== 1 goto 4

#################################################################################

This section has nothing different from section one, so no definitions are required. But, I will explain what happens here. It begins by saying "Thank you for downloading." and begins a fake download. Then it fake pauses the fake download and says that a "virus" has been detected. This is all written in a lime green font color.

Step 3: Step 3: Are You Sure You Don't Want to Download?

This is the part if you say "No" in Step One. Copy and Paste below Step Two's line of coding.

##################################################################################

:2
Cls
echo Are you sure you don't want to download a free game?
echo Type 2 for Yes or type 3 for No
set input=
set /p input=
if %input%== 2 goto 1
if %input%== 3 goto 3

###################################################################################

Asks if you are sure you do NOT want to download.

Step 4: Step 4: Oh Well, Too Bad

This step is if you say that you do NOT want to download the game, twice. Copy and paste below Step Three's coding.

############################################################################

:3
Cls
color C
echo Oh well. We're not letting you throw away a perfect
echo video game that's FREE.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
goto 1

######################################################################

goto 1 is a command that after all the commands here finish, it will take you to :1, where you "download" the game.

Step 5: Step 5: Deleting the "Virus"

This step comes after you "download" the free game. Copy and paste Step Four's line of coding.

##################################################################

:4
Cls
color C
echo Deleting virus... 1%
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Deleting virus... 37%
echo Deleting virus... 43%
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Error.exe
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Failure to delete virus.
echo =!WARNING!=
echo Your data is at risk!
pause
echo Deleting all SYSTEM32 files...
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
Cls
echo Cleared.
pause

######################################################################

This is the part of the virus where the "virus" comes to play. It's also where the virus begins to "delete" the "SYSTEM32" files.

Step 6: Step 6: SYSTEM32 Files and Fake Hacker Talks

Here is where somehow the SYSTEM32 files magically begin restoring. Then, a "hacker" starts talking. Copy and paste below Step Five's coding.

########################################################################

Cls
color 4
echo Error.exe
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo SYSTEM32 files being restored.
pause
echo Error.exe
echo SYSTEM32 files breached.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo !@#.4fa
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
Cls
color A
echo Hehehe...
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo I'm in control now...
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo I have your SYSTEM32 files now...
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo In case you didn't know,
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo SYSTEM32 files are what run your computer.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo You'll be happy that it's under my control.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul

###########################################################################

Step 7: Step 7: Finishing the "Hack"

This is where the "Hack" finishes, and we come to a conclusion with the hacker's talking. Copy and paste below Step Six's coding.

########################################################################

Cls
color C
echo ERROR ERROR ERROR
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Hack.exe Successful.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
Cls
color A
echo Hey... It's me again.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo You scared yet? Not sure what to do?
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Because...
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul

#######################################################################

Step 8: Step 8: Announcing the Troll

This is the final step in creating the fake virus. It's where you say that they got trolled. Change whatever you want, I recommend it because I made it to troll my friend. Copy and paste below Step Seven's line of coding.

#############################################################################

Cls
color F
echo YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE LOOK ON YOUR FACE!!!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo I TOTALLY GOT YOU!!!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo ALL I DID WAS PUT SOME CODING INTO NOTEPAD AND MAKE IT LOOK LIKE YOU GOT HACKED!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Oh, I am just DYING here right now!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Are you crying?
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Because I am.
echo DUE TO ALL THIS LAUGHTER!!!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo #TROLLS FOR DAYS!!!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Ahhhhh... That was fun.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo I want to let you know that nothing happened.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Nothing was deleted.
echo The only thing I did was make this Batch File say stuff to make it look like you got hacked.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo If you think back to it, don't you find it just a LITTLE funny?
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Yeah, this took me a while to make.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo It was fun doing this. It really was.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo I hope to see you around some time...
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo And if I do, I would really like to teach you coding and such.
echo Like how I made this fake virus delio.
echo I made it in Notepad if that helps your case.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Later!
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
echo Press any button to exit after you're done reading.
ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul
pause
exit

###########################################################################

Step 9: Step 9: Finished!

Congratulations! You have successfully created a fake virus! (I hope) Remember: I am working on one where it shuts down the computer. Have fun with your newly created fake virus!

FYI: All your ping -n comes out as ping n-

TOX1K DEFTON3 (author)mh76dk2014-10-09

mh76dk, What does that mean? I never put in a ping -n...Could you explain?

author
mh76dk (author)TOX1K DEFTON32014-10-09

In the batchfile code in this instructable you have:

"ping n- 2 127.0.0.1>nul"

when it should be:

"ping -n 2 127.0.0.1>nul"

author
TOX1K DEFTON3 (author)mh76dk2014-10-09

Yep, it doesn't matter. It'll work either way.

author
TOX1K DEFTON3 (author)mh76dk2014-10-09

Interesting... When I do it, it doesn't do that... I'll check it out after dinner.
