Windows 7: [Help] Crash Windows 7 Computer, Batch File [Wrong Section?]

[Help] Crash Windows 7 Computer, Batch File [Wrong Section?]

Hey guys, i'm new to this forum, obviously since this is only my first post. I don't know where to actually post this so if a forum mod would like to move this feel free.

But i'm looking for a way to crash a Windows 7 computer, using a batch file. I know a decent amount about DOS/Batch files, but i don't know exactly how to crash a windows 7 computer using a batch file, because there was only one way i really wanted to do it, but with Windows 7 security fail safe, i can't take control and delete my "c:\windows\system32" folder.

You're probably asking me why i would like to do this, and the reason is because it's a school project. My instructor would like us to crash one of this lab computers using a batch file, which all i can do is Right-click>Run As Administrator. He wants it done with a lot of stylish stuff, and etc. But i'm not here for that, all i'm curious about is some different, unique, cool ways to crash a Windows 7 computer.
  • Batch file will be copied to the desktop and run as administrator.(No files other than the batch file may be copied to desktop)
  • Additional files can be utilized either as a result of creation through the batch file, as a result of downloading from the Internet or files native to the lab workstations.
  • Additional files are only to be utilized through the batch file
  • Speakers are available on-demand
  • Damage must be contained within the local machine

Is everything i'm allowed to do, plus i can use hardware damage.
Feel free to flame, etc, i'm just a new comer on this forum so i don't know how you all work. But i would hope you would/could help me.

Thank you in advance,

Personally I don't think such things should be posted. We are here to help fix computers not dream up ways to destroy them.

Granted I am breaking a computer. And whatever problems do happen to it, they will be completely fixed and nothing will actually be done to the computer unless hardware damage is done.

Actually you are not breaking a computer. You are trying to break the operating system.

As to how I have no idea. The one thing I do know is that you can't cause any real hardware damage to the computer by running any program. Yes you can corrupt the hard drive but all that can be fixed. There are no key combos or programs that can cause the system to self destruct, burst into sparks and flames.

That is a Movie thing. Not real life.

You could execute multiple random number requests using the random number generator and execute this in parallel many times for an infinitely long random number.

Either one of two things or both will happen:
1) Windows runs out of allocated RAM
2) Resources on the CPU will be so high that windows will not be able to poll the CPU for commands anymore.

This does not actually "destroy" the computer, just lock up the OS due to a lack of available resources.

Either way just a warning: is that you should not use any of this for harmful intent!
