Fake Computer Virus!


Introduction: Fake Computer Virus!

About: Hey, I like to do crazy stuff and have fun!

Alright, I will be showing you a code that you can copy and paste into notepad to be a fake virus.
NOTE: Please do not change the code or anything. I am not responsible for anything if that happens!!
I will explain every part of this code to ensure your computer's safety!!:)

Step 1: Notepad

What you need for this instructable is
1. Notepad (or basic text application)
2. Hands (You don't even need two!!)

Step 2: The Actual Code

This code is to be copy and paster into the notepad program.
Please do not alter it!!

title TROJAN!!
PING -n 1 -w 6000 >NUL
ECHO/Trojan quarantined
PING -n 1 -w 600 >NUL
ECHO/Taking over the computer!!
PING -n 1 -w 600 >NUL
ECHO/Starting to erase data banks!!
PING -n 1 -w 600 >NUL
ECHO/Shutting down computer!!
shutdown -s -t 60

Now, this is a mouthful. I will explain it in teh next step.

Step 3: Explanation

All of the ECHO's are just instructing the computer to say something.
The choice is telling the computer to give you a y or n choice.
The ping is a time delay
the shutdown at the end tells the computer to shut down.

To avert the shutdown go to commandprompt and type shutdown -a

Step 4: Picture of What the Code Does

This is a picture of what the code does.

Step 5: Finished

You are now finished with the code, this will make many people frusterated or angry!! Have fun!!

    Your example is a fail. Try changing it.

    "NOTE: Please do not change the code or anything. I am not responsible for anything if that happens!!" Does this mean that if something did in fact happen, though no changes where made to the code, I can hold you responsible?

    What I am trying to say is that people should not show other people how to mess around negatively with computers? Would you want someone planting a fake virus on your computer? And I am in no way implying I'm the "master commander of coding". I am merely saying that you should spend your time in a more productive way, like creating useful applications. And I am truly sorry that I may have commented with a rather negative tone. But please, learn a real programming and learn how to code for real.

    This is useless. I hate it when a bunch of 12 year olds go around thinking that they can code, but in actuality they can't. Go make something useful, like an application that helps non-programmers make applications or something instead of wasting your time making useless fake virus pranks. And this isn't even programming, it's called scripting. Actual programming is when you create an executable (.exe) and scripting is creating a sort of miniature program that allows you to get tasks on your computer done.

    Also, if you are looking to get tasks done, then why are you looking at an instructable for a fake computer virus?

    I noticed that you have negatively commented on many of these types of instructables. If this is what it takes to make you feel good about yourself then I feel badly for you. Instead of encouraging these "12 year olds" to continue doing what they like to do, you are trashing them and giving the appearance that you are the master commander of coding. This is not the spirit of instructables and I will ask you to no longer comment on any of my projects. Thank you.

    how do you make that batch file that says: 1010110101010101001010110101101011011????????

    If this instructable needs something that isn't here, please tell me or give me any hints to make this better!!

    If you want a better explanation for the ping part. The "-n 1" is telling it to only try pinging once, instead of the default 4, and the "-w 600" is telling it to wait 600ms before deciding that an address is unreachable and timing out. will be unreachable so it will keep going for as long as you tell it to wait before giving up.

    Wow. You are very smart. I didn't exactly know what all of that did until now. I knew it was safe and was a timer but not all that. I might have a few questions for you later on.
