Hi.

How do we crash a working windows in less than 3 minutes? Can anyone suggest me the most easiest way. Its not for harming people but for a competition, bizarre.

Thanks.

Remove a needed folder. We generally do not discuss how to break Windows PCs here.

It is very similar to falling down... Instead of putting a foot down, just lean forward with one foot in the air...

That is about as much help as we will give with this question... There are so many ways that Windows crashes naturally, I don't see any reason to come up with ways to do it intentionally...

What i want to know is what kind of competition asks you to crash windows
besides, all i need is a window on the top floor
Not revealing anything else

Nah, Windows XP will typically start it up again after a minute or so.

Double click my computer, right click Local Disk C:, Properties, Security, click on System and check deny next to full control (it selects everything) and click Apply, click Advanced and check the box next to "Replace permission entries on all child..." and click OK. That may do it.

I am not entirely sure what that is supposed to mean, but it appears to be insulting in intent...

If you post asking how to mess up a PC, you are going to get suspicions in return... If you expect anything other than that, you are not very perceptive...

A somewhat well known troubleshooting method is to create a new entry in the registry which upon reboot will allow one to produce a BSOD by simply pressing the right Ctrl key and tapping the Scrll Lock key twice.
