#1 – Reset Internet Connection
We live in the internet generation where answers to every question can be found on the web. But what if we stopped your target’s internet connection on their computer, they wouldn’t be able to find an answer unless they have access to a smartphone at that time.
- To do so, open Notepad and type or copy / paste the following command:
@Echo off Ipconfig /release
- Once done, save the file with the .bat extension and open it to run that batch file. This will simply reset the computer’s IP address and hence the target wouldn’t be able to access the internet.
- To fix this, run the following command in the command prompt (CMD)
#2 – Shut Down Target’s Computer With A Message
- To shut down your target’s computer type the command in the following syntax in Notepad:
@echo off SHUTDOWN -s -c "<YOUR MESSAGE HERE>" -t <TIMEOUT IN SECONDS>
Note: Message should be between ” ” and seconds should be in numbers without any quotes.
