Fake Delete 3.05



Fake Delete simulates the deletion of all files/folders in the Windows directory or whichever directory is passed via the command line. Fake Delete uses the standard Windows delete dialog so it appears very realistic, and it cannot be disabled or stopped. The custom delete file display list is generated by scanning the computer?s directory, and actually displays the files being deleted. When Fake Delete initially starts, it adds a file to the Recycle Bin to assist the illusion. If a directory is passed on the command line, then that directory is the directory deleted.


Fake Delete is small Windows application whose sole purpose is to help you play pranks on your friends by making them believe that their computer is infected with a virus that is able to delete important folders automatically.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to play jokes on your friends on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

When you launch the utility, it displays a dialog that asks you to confirm or cancel the deletion of the Windows folder. By default, the program makes use of the Windows folder, and you can manually change the directory that you want to delete with the aid of command-line parameters.

The confirmation window looks like a Windows dialog, so it doesn’t raise any suspicions. Regardless of your choice (“Yes” or “No”), the utility automatically triggers a fake deletion process and it simulates the removal of the Windows folder.

The window displaying the “Deleting…” message cannot be closed but its process can be terminated via the Task Manager. What’s more, Fake Delete scans the directory, displays each file one by one, simulating the deletion process, and reveals a notification message.

The lack of configurable settings makes it an ideal tool especially for less experienced users. On the downside, it hasn’t been updated for a while, so it may cause compatibility issues on newer operating systems.

All in all, Fake Delete offers a simple software solution for helping you play pranks on your friends with minimal effort.
