Now,you have the virus named "image101" which you can place in your friend's computer or send it to him.As soon as he clicks on it, it will show a message "shutting down in 20 secs" and computer will be turned off.

  1. Instead of shutting down computer,if you want to restart it use this command shutdown -r -f -t 30 -c "give the message you want to display" 
  2. -t 30  represents the time period(here, 30 seconds) after which computer will shutdown.
  3. If you want  to abort the shutdown, use the following command shutdown -a
