To demonstrate this prank, create a testing directory, such as C:\\Endless Folder Prank Test. In this testing directory, create .bat file, and put this code in the .bat file. Let's name this file folderprank.bat.
q@echo off :top md FolderPrank%random% goto top
Right click on the folderprank.bat file, and select open. A command line prompt will appear, and endless new folders will start to be written to the C:\\Endless Folder Prank Test directory. To stop this, just close the Command Line prompt. The next level of this prank is to run the above code without the Command Line prompt. This can be accomplished by creating a VBS script. In the C:\\Endless Folder Prank Test directory, create a file silent.vbs. Place the below code in the silent.vbs file. Then, run this silent.vbs file instead of the .BAT file, and the prank will execute with no Command Line prompt. To end the prank, go into the Task Manager, go to the processes tab, and end the cmd.exe process.
