Access CMD on School Computers

Most schools have blocked CMD because of security issues. Once you have CMD access you can reformat the hard drive, do various diagnostics, add users into groups and much more. There are 3 ways getting around this, once you enable CMD, what you do next is up to you. I am not to be held responsible for your actions, I am only here to inform.

Method 1 
1. Open up Notepad or Wordpad
3. Save the file as CMD.EXE or alternatively, CMD.BAT or CMD.COM
Method 2 
Open My Documents (or any folder), and in the address bar type in C:windowssystem32cmd.exe. This should launch CMD directly from the folder. Works best if it hasn’t been disabled just hidden.
Method 3 
This is the method which works for me, my network has CMD blocked completely.
1. Click anywhere on your desktop. Right click -> New -> Shortcut.
2. Type in (or copy/paste) REG add HKCUSoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftWindowsSystem /v DisableCMD
3. Run the shortcut and you’ll see a box with Y/N. Press Y. CMD should now be enabled.
4. Refer back to method 1 and CMD should be working now.

Hope this helps people who need it.
