Prank Virus

Hello, everyone! I would greatly appreciate it if you would download my safe and harmless fake virus prank and test it out. It can be found here:

The zip file is less than 1 KB, so it will download immediately. Extract it, and then open the prank.vbs file. I swear it is completely safe. Just remember to use Task Manager to kill it, as it will not close itself, and you can't just close it with the X button (at least you shouldn't be able to). It is working fine on my computer as a prank, and I would just like to know what you all think, and if you are having any problems. Please post back here with any feedback/questions.

Also, feel free to view the actual script by editing it with notepad, and you can also use it on your friends if you wish.

Thanks, Kris.

  1. Is this a bouncing window prank?
  2. no. it does a lot...
  3. I have many other simpler ones that display messages and won't close, but they're not as fun or as long as this one.
  4. Opens a notepad and types some stuff, then runs a batchfile that looks like a program executing a lot of code to a dumbass, but harmless to anyone that knows what they're doing. Then it displays an error message saying you have a virus and "All your base are belong to us"

    It's one of my first scripts, but I like it. It's completely safe, and really fun to prank newbsters with.
  5. LMAO. I could make a Java app with a .exe wrapper that would do some thing like this... should be funny :lol:
  6. WARNING: This is pretty GPU intensive due to insane amount of redraw of the cmd window under Windows "Aero". Pushed my 8400GS to 98% usage (as seen by EVGA Precision).

    Here is the EXE:
  7. this is pretty similar to c++, which is what I'm more familiar with. looks fun, I'll have to give it a try.
  8. Argh! Another person who puts the opening brace for code blocks on the same line as the control statement. :( New lines only please! :D
  9. Yeah, it's a little hard to read, but not that bad.
  10. I was talking about shadow's work, I didn't check the code in yours.
  11. I know

    lol. the entire thing gets formatted in that way automatically in NetBeans. Besides, I like it that way :P.
  13. That's the first thing I changed in Netbeans :) Allman for me!
  14. Ha, i would have to throw my support to randomizer and Allman. :) However, regarding the wiki article, just make sure to avoid emacs like the plague :P

    @shadow the fact that this pushes your 8400GS to 98% without even utilizing a gui terrifies me...
  15. ^ Yeah, I know. I was surprised too. Here's a screen shot:

    95% GPU use.

    Btw, what format (indent style) am I using? I think it's KNF or Banner or a K&R variant. Which one is it?
  16. I think it is technically KNF, but i have always known it as "That damned annoying style that all my professors and partners seem to love for who knows why" :P
  17. ^^ That's all fine and dandy, but can we get back to my prank virus? Did you try it kyeana?
  18. Nope. No offense, but there is absolutely no way that i would run any programs that didn't come from a well known and respectable source (such as official repositories) on any of my computers. I have too much invested in them, and hackers are notoriously tricky people ;)

    Besides, you said it was a visual basic script, and all my personal computers are solely running Linux.
  19. ^ I ran it in sandboxie. It's fine. Just creates an infinite loop displaying the directory,etc.

  20. I did make another one that actually harms your computer, but I won't publish it. I don't like to harm people's computers, I just like to write scripts.
