Virus Prank

Introduction: Virus Prank

This will freak out your friends or whoever you do it to! They will think that their hard drive will get fried. It is completely reversable.

Virus Prank 2: https://www.instructables.com/id/Virus-Prank-2/

Step 1: Run the VIRUS

In the start menu, there should be something that says "Run". Click on that and type in "VIRUS" and press OK. An error message should come up with the title "VIRUS".

Step 2: Paint

Now do "Prnt Scrn" (Print Screen) and paste it into MS Paint. Now click on the tool that copies a color and right click on the grey part of the error message. Now erase all of the text.

Step 3: Write New Words

With the text being "Times New Romans" and the font size 8, write a new error message in all CAPS. I wrote this: "WARNING! A VIRUS HAS BEEN DETECTED! SHUT YOUR COMPUTER OFF RIGHT NOW AND TAKE IT TO A PROFESSIONAL TO PREVENT YOUR COMPUTER FROM NEVER WORKING AGAIN!" You can write something different if you want.

Step 4: Make It the Background

Now all you need to do is make it the background of the computer. So the next time someone turns it on, they will freak out!

    hey shadowdragon
    a much more effective thing to do is something i used to do in my school
    if you open notepad
    type in
    x=msgbox("WARNING! A VIRUS HAS BEEN DETECTED",vbCritical,"VIRUS")
    and copy and past that about a bazillion times
    then save as virus.vbs
    or whatever you want to call it
    then change the icon and copy and paste it over the items in the desktop
    then everytime they try run something on the desktop (usually when they try open internet explorer or firefox) it runs that and displays the message
    it doesnt harm anything on the computer at all
    takes about 3 seconds to put all the icons back to normal
    but it is an actual messagebox that pops up
    and cos it says "vbcritical" it actually makes the sound a critical error makes when it opens
    and cos youve copy and pasted it
    whenever they close it
    another one opens =]
    for a good while anyways
    or you cud have it as one of the programs that runs on "startup" of the computer
    but that means it will bug you as well
    and in school or office you might get told off for "editing the logon script"
    whereas with my way they just sorta sigh and giggle a bit once they realise
    but it still scares the bajeesus out of peoples

    =D

    lol, I did this a couple of years ago to my computer teacher...
    not the exact same thing, but popups filled the whole screen....
    The result = a year of being banned from school computers, and a couple hours of community service...

    not my best decision, but funny all the same
    the computer administrator actually called in a professional computer expert to delete the little batch file...Those admins are soooooo smart at my school!

    (funny how one line of code can get you screwed over! :) )

    omg you got community service?

    put it in startup it really screws with the computer

    I did that once, only I didn't get caught. The way I did it is that I put it on a website.

    lol, our admins dont care. untill my friend managed to get a cpu beep loop on every single computer on the school. that was rat.

    i dont get it. i add the code, save it, then what

    then click file, save as background, CENTERED, and wait! : D

    nice pic

    You can use a Do/While or a For/Next loop.

    yes
    you can
    but that wud create an infinite loop, unless i created a perimeter such as index+1 stop when index = 30
    or something
    which is needlessly complicated when doing something just for fun
    and requires declaration of variables and shiz, which when doing something for fun like this, was totally pointless

    So yes, i could have used a do/while or for/next loop, but i found that when im making something that is going to be deleted when found, copy and pasting a line 30 times seems a lot better(quicker), then actually fully scripting something.

    but it is considered bad practise to do so i suppose =]

    You have no idea how seriously we programmers take our pranks.

    best code ever.

    dim one as integer
    one = 1
    if one = 2 then quit
    else msgbox "one does not yet equal two"
    endif

    Hahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahhahaha HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA MY FRIEND JUST CAME ACROSS AND SAW THAT (IM IN A COMPUTING LESSON THINGY) AND THOUGHT I WAS CREATING SOME ACE PROGRAM HE TYPED IT IN AND LOST ALL HIS WORK COS HE HADNT SAVED AND HAD TO RE-SET AAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAAHHAHAHAHAHaHAHAHaHAHAHAHA

    user

    also try: do system.diagnostics.process.start("explorer","") beep loop

    yeah i knew that one =p
    best thing i found
    was a backdoor into our college computers
    (they use Novell)
    that let me edit the logon scripts of one computer
    well
    all i did was edit it
    and then get it to save to the persons account
    cos they all had a virtual drive
    and then it copied to the next computer
    which when someone else logged onto it copied onto Their login script
    it was really really simple coding
    and it ran a .vbs program
    that beeped
    3 times
    while they logged in
    and while almost unnoticable at first
    3 beeps on one computer
    when 3 people have it
    then 9
    then 27
    as more people use the computers used by the people with the script
    suddenly the first minute of any computing lesson was filled with loud beeps

    eeeh
    i love that beep command

    That sounds like that the computer is gonna explode; freaky

    Dude, post the script for that! plz

    another good one for noobs press CTRL + ALT + UP key press CTRL + ALT + DOWN to reverse only works on intel graphics
