Hi! In this tutorial, I am gonna to showing you “how to make a fake virus” to shut down, restart or log off your computer. As we know that we can shutdown our computer from Start, click on shutdown button. We can also shutdown your computer through command prompt as type in command prompt wizard ‘shutdown –s’ and press ‘enter button’ from your key-board to shutdown. But, is it possible to create a fake “virus” for shutdown our computer and to place it at anywhere? Then, the answer is yes. Now, you can also create your own shutdown “virus” and can place it anywhere whether in folder or desktop or anywhere based on you.

This is really an interesting tutorial in which you will create a fake “virus” which can shutdown, restart and log off your PC (Can also write a message and specify the countdown time). This is actually a faster way to turn off your PC as it doesn’t require clicking START>TURNOFF button etc. And you can always play a fun prank by sending it to your friends. So, let’s start to create.

In order to create fake “virus” for shut down, first you need is to learn some shutdown commands. These commands is not too difficult but, please learn and use carefully. These commands are-


1. shutdown –s
It is used to shut down your computer.

2. shutdown –s –t 5
It works same like shutdown but, here –t included means to give limited specific time to shutdown. Here, five seconds are given.

3. shutdown –a
It is used to abort shut down process.

4. shutdown –r
It is used to restart your computer.

5. shutdown –r –t 5
It works same like restart but, here –t included means to give limited specific time to restart. Here, five seconds are given.

6. Shutdown –c “comment“
It is used to give shutdown comment (maximum of 127 characters).

7. shutdown –l
It is used to log off your computer. In this command, you can’t set specific time in this command.

These above commands plays main role in order to create fake “virus” for shutdown. Now, it’s time to create fake “virus” so, firstly go to Desktop and there right click from your mouse as go to New- Shortcut (click on Shortcut). Then, New Shortcut icon will appear and with it, Create Shortcut wizard will also appear. Enter any one command from above commands (based on your purpose as what you want to do?) in text box and click on next button. Now, the next step is to type a name for this shortcut (Shortcut Name) and click on Finish button.





In this way you can create fake “virus” for shut down as now all you need is to open that virus by double click on that or either right click from your mouse and click on open. If you followed all steps carefully then, I promised it will work properly. I hope you like it…
