Some Computer Pranks for your Friends!!!
« on: 26/03/2008 22:52:48 »
LOL I love annoying people with computer pranks..!
Ermm..
The best one is just creating a new shortcut..

Right-click on your desktop, and go to New, Shortcut..

Type in there, Shutdown -s -c "You have a virus"

And name that as Internet Explorer

Then right click on that icon you just made, and go to Properties, Change Icon, and change it to the one that looks like the original internet icon!!

Then delete the original Internet Explorer icon, and replace it with the one you just made!
So when they click on it, it shuts their computer off ;D

He's devious enough to find out for himself, like I was. I found the blue screen of death screensaver and had a ball with that.

I find setting fire to a friends computer always brings a happy smirk, a chortle and a guffaw !!






....and even though their life's work and records and once only data is destroyed forever they always see the funny side of it too.......which is nice....

This is the "blue screen of death." I it for the NT operating system.



The screen saver - a free download - is available at http://www.sureshotsoftware.com/bluesaver/index.html This a program that will imitate whichever of  the particular windows operating system it is installed on.

I installed this on a fiend's machine once and just left innocently. About 4 days later he called me and told me he just could not figure out what was going on. He absolutely going crazy. After listening to his tale of woe for about ten minutes and talking of possible solutions I interrupted him and said something to the effect - "you know, I think I heard from a programmer friend that while Microsoft was developing Win 95 one of their programmers made a screen saver as a prank. A guy would go the the bathroom and while he was gone his machine would "blue screen". Next time you restart your machine, first look on the web to see if that was published somewhere and find out what files are installed by this program."

20 minutes later he called me and thanked me profusely.

The story about how this screen saver first came into being is true.   

But - it could cause a lot of grief as well.

Sorry to be boring, but do be careful with such pranks though.
If the "victim" doesn't know what's going on they may well cause *real* damage (or loss of files etc) to their computer trying to fix the fake-problem.

Several anti-virus programs Add it into their virus definition list.

I tried to warned against it this possibility, probably not strongly enough.
