Display Fake Cpu Configuration on System Properties…

Have you ever wondered to surprise your friend by showing a high end processor on your system. Though you lie about having such processor, they could easily find out by simply checking your system properties. In Windows, we usually use system properties to view system details like Processor and RAM details. To open the system proprieties (Press Window Logo + Pause Break Or Right click on My computer and Select Properties). So, When you buy new System, your friends usually check your system specification just by going to System Properties. Try this trick to fool your friends or to play pranks on your friends.
This trick is for windows where you can modify CPU information and the same displays in System Properties. Suppose you want to display processor like core i7 or Core 2 Quad or Pentium 2 or anything. Basically, you can edit and write whatever you want.

  • Milan Hotels

    Hey geek. This is seriously a wonderful post. I could not think of this at all. This would be even more funny if I change the configuration here and sell it off in the market. I would actually be selling it at a very high price :). Hope microsoft finds this bug soon.

  • Banner Advertising

    It is a pretty cool tweak but I don't really see the whole point of changing your system specs to display something that's not true…

    I guess it would be a good joke to fool your friends.

    • K.roshan

      @Sardar Khalid,
      On what system your trying this… i am assuming it as XP. As per the test conducted on XP, after restart it reverts back to the original configuration.. after restart chk system properties…

      As far as i know, this is not possible because after the restart the system update the entries from system so you can’t fool your system.

  • You can see the name permanently guys!. Export the edited string, than copy it to the startup folder. I promise 🙂 check mine http://www.jagoancyber.com
