Here's a cheap trick to amuse yourself when you get bored.

Open a command prompt (Start, Run, cmd, OK) and enter the following command:
title I am a DOS god!
then check out the title bar of the command window.
Of course you'll want to substitute your own text string for your own amusement.

:thumbsup:

This is due to not adding the Command title in from of your message.

It needs to look like this in the dos window.

Well kinda Nice Trick :thumbsup: give it 4 out of 5 stars
Just a little thinking though,malware writers may apply this trick on renaming the Command prompt if possible...

Nah, the title is for the window only, new command windows will bear the original title.
