CMD Timer

1.Open the command prompt. This may be done by clicking on the "Start" button, and selecting "Run".

 2.Type in cmd and press Enter.

3.Type in shutdown -m \\computername, replacing "computername" with the name of the computer you wish to shutdown or the computer's IP address.

 4.Experiment with the shutdown command's switches.

  • -r will force a restart, disabling any services or user interaction from interrupting it.
  • -c "comment" will force a comment to appear on the system being shutdown.
  • -t xx will force a timeout for "xx" seconds. For example, -t 60 would perform a shutdown after a 60-second timeout.
  • -a will abort the shutdown.
  • A full command example: shutdown -m \\myserver -r -c "This system will shutdown in 60 seconds" -t 60

 5. Try another method my favorite

  • Type shutdown -i in the run window.
  • Click the "Add" box and type the name of the computer you want to shutdown or its IP address. You can select what you want the computer to do.
  • In this mode, it's necessary to add a comment. Do so.
  • Press OK.
CMD Message

  • Access to two computers with Windows XP on the same network
  • Command Prompt
  • It does not work on Windows Vista or later.

 1.Open notepad then type:

#@ echo off
#set /p n=User:
#set /p m=Message:
#net send %n% %m%
#Goto A
 When you're finished, click on file, save as, then save it as messenger.bat.

2 .Go to control panel (make sure you are in Classic View). Click on "administrative tools", then click on "services".

3.Now find the "messenger" service in the list on the right, then open it. You'll see "startup type" which should be disabled, so click on that and select "manual".

4.Now press the start button in the upper right hand corner of the window (not the green start button), and click apply.

5 Next, do the same procedure on the remote computer. Until this service is activated on that PC, or you won't be able to use this!

Another easier way is to go to the start menu and click on run or press the start button+R, then type "conf" without the quotes, which will open netmeeting, a similar chat program.
