Corruption

can batch files bypass administrators access?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

windows 7 (if that matters)

so i'm trying to show off to my friends with some random batch files i created and was wondering if, for instance, i wanted to delete system32. if i just browse the files normally and right click, delete. it asks for the admin username and password. so will it show that if the command is from a batch file?

I tried to delete System32 once.

It failed because it was in use. xD

You  could probably get around it if you really wanted to.

 

Something like: Take ownership of all of the files under C:\Windows\System32

 

Then force delete the whole folder...

I used to have a similar script for XP for trolling people at school(the machines were ghosted and booted off the network so it was fine after reboot)

 

W7 step up a lot of security so it may no longer work...

A fun thought for you: If you replace the windows help program that is run on startup from the login page it automatically runs as admin, doing this may allow you to delete the folder.

I thought it complained that you didn't have permission from trustedinstaller if you tried.

 

I still have a windows folder on one of my hard drives because I'm too lazy to set up a dual boot and remove it with linux.
