My friend played a prank on me, he said it was just a joke but I'm worried it's not, he created a "batch file" on my computer and ran a supposed prank virus. He found it on what he said was a website that taught cool harmless hacker jokes but I'm worried it's more than this, anyway, I don't know anything about this stuff, he showed me the site and I've copied the code he used. Can anyone tell me if this is serious?
I can't paste the code because it's too big but it's on this site where it says Prank Virus: http://xeemez.blogspot.com/2013/04/hack-the-bat.html

Regardless of real or fake, he just broke the law and could face serious prison time. Making anything install or run on another person's machine without their express consent is totally illegal. And you now need to run full malware scans on your machine including rootkit scans, as most of these "prank" friends use this trick to install spyware. That could give out all your personal information, including user names, passwords, bank and credit card details. Why does your machine not have a good fully updated active anti-virus to protect it?

A .Batch file is used for storing a set of commands that are then executed via command prompt, Don't listen to these people who are saying that its a virus, Its harmless, Windows wouldn't allow you ruin your computer via cmd, you can't even "Delete System 32" as Windows needs System 32 in order to delete System 32.

Grab a free copy of malwarebytes at http://www.malwarebytes.org. Install, update definitions and run the scan. Clean off anything it finds.

If you still can't get it clean, I recommend using a service to clean your PC, like http://www.cleanourcomputer.com They do a great job and guarantee their work.
