    Hi all,

    Today I was downloading a large file at school and my Com Tech teacher noticed. He did something in cmd and ran a lil program, 20 seconds later my computer was turned off. I know he put something like "-i" with something before that in the "run" command in the tool bar. What did he do? N8, maybe you can shed some light here, maybe you know

    Many thanks though,

    Rob

    When He Trying to Shutdown your PC Just Type this in START -> RUN -> shutdown -a
    so he can't Turn off your PC, This Command Line Will Terminate Shutdown Process !

    and About which he used for Just use shutdown -i in RUN and you will see GUI interface of Shutdown Program, as he added your PC into this Computer Section of Shutdown Application so he had permissions to shutdown your PC via the Network !

    Good Luck Robby !

    You can open a command line prompt by going to START>RUN and then type in cmd and press enter. From the command line type in "shutdown /?" (without quotes) and you will see the following (its the help file for the shutdown command).

    shutdown /?
    Usage: shutdown [-i | -l | -s | -r | -a] [-f] [-m \\computername] [-t xx] [-c "c
    omment"] [-d up:xx:yy]

    No args Display this message (same as -?)
    -i Display GUI interface, must be the first option
    -l Log off (cannot be used with -m option)
    -s Shutdown the computer
    -r Shutdown and restart the computer
    -a Abort a system shutdown
    -m \\computername Remote computer to shutdown/restart/abort
    -t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds
    -c "comment" Shutdown comment (maximum of 127 characters)
    -f Forces running applications to close without war
    ning
    -d [u][p]:xx:yy The reason code for the shutdown
    u is the user code
    p is a planned shutdown code
    xx is the major reason code (positive integer le
    ss than 256)
    yy is the minor reason code (positive integer le
    ss than 65536)
    Before you post please
    Read the sticky's Read the manual Use the search button Google it

    Drizzle's so cool he sh*ts icecubes.

    I'd bet they have some software installed like cornerstone. that's what we have at our school. My boss can shutdown, restart, and push updates to any computer on the staff/lab network (they have to have the client installed of course). and the shutdown -a trick will only work if you're quick enough to catch it, and you have to do it each time he tries, and immediately when he tries. It's not a 1 time deal. if he tries to shut it down again, you'll have to do it again.

    You can Disable it too, just goto :
    Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services
    and find Installed Software Service and Disable it, and after it they can't control your PC anymore

    i'm using another trick, i boot the PC with a Bootable Flash Memory and a Live Windows or Linux.
    Some Network Based PC haven't Hard Disk Drive! and those use Network Hard Disk Drive based on the Server System

    I dont know if it would work in your case. But it tricks parental controls.

    huh at my school they use novell...
    i can't get into anything.
    they don't even have the run command to do any of that.
    my computer teacher wouldn't know how anyway becasue they block teachers form doing stuff to.
    i did get into the restricted files and found admin tools but they wouldn't work...

    is there a shortcut key or something to open open up the run screen

    There is a way to get into the PC's administrative account.
    I dont know how novell works, so i dont know if it will help.

    All modern PCs have an Admin. acc.
    Most people dont know this, so.. they dont put a password on it.

    Getting to it is pretty simple: Put the PC in "Safe Mode".
    There are a few ways to do it..
    Repeatedly turn on/off the PC
    if this doesnt automaticly put it in Safe Mode..

    .. A black screen with white text should appear. (It should be counting down at the bottom) Using the arrow keys highlight "Safe Mode" and press "Enter"
    Now the User Selector screen should appear with "Administrator" as an option.
    Click on it.
    Now you can do pretty much as you please, add/delete accounts, change passwords, remove software, etc.

    *NOTE* There are some things you can not do while in Safe Mode

    Please Dont Double Post. 3 Times And A One Week Ban Will Be Issued - Admin
