    c pound also uses strings, but unlike character arrays and c++ string class objects, they are not directly accessable by element.

    Code:
    string mystring = "string";

    The commented out parts would initiate (and stop) the shutdown process, if windows.h wasnt being wierd and saying the function doesnt exist (when MSDN clearly states it does).

    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    //#include <Windows.h>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    int main()
    {
        char x;
    
    
    
        cout << "HELLO!\n\tEnter a to see sumthin kool other wise put b" << endl; // \t is tab
        cout << "ENTER: ";
        cin >> x;
    
    	if(!cin) {
    		cout << "Error with your input!" << endl;
    		return 1;
    	}
    
        if ( x == 'a' ) {
             cout << "\tDeleting Windows Registry.... Done!" << endl;
    		 Sleep(60);
             cout << "\tDeleting Master Boot Record.... Done!" << endl;
    		 Sleep(60);
             cout << "\tDeleting Windows System DLL's.... Done!" << endl;
    		 Sleep(60);
             cout << "\tDeleting Remaining System Files.... Done" << endl;
    		 Sleep(60);
             cout << "\tAfter you exit this program your system will shut down!\n" << endl;
    		 Sleep(60);
             cout << "Press Enter to exit and shut down" << endl;
    		 cin.get();
    
    		 //InitiateSystemShutdownEx(NULL, NULL, NULL, TRUE, FALSE, SHTDN_REASON_MAJOR_APPLICATION);
    	} else if ( x == 'b' ) {
             cout << "\tAWW! that sucks you dont wanna see it fine :(" << endl;
    		 cout << "Press Enter to exit" << endl;
    		 cin.get();
    	} else {
    		cout << "You didnt pick any of my choices!" << endl;
    		cout << "Press Enter to exit" << endl;
    		cin.get();
    	}
    	
    	//Sleep(50);
    	//cin.get();
    	//AbortSystemShutdown();
    
    	cin.ignore();
    	cin.get();
    	return 0;
    }

    I was replying to the post on the first page, and didnt notice it was a 3 page long topic. That was my version of how to take a or b char's input. Then theres commented out parts (// means disabled), 4 lines, that would make their computer shut down (but then stop it when they push enter).. accept for some reason it wasnt working. Run the program, and read the code if you dont get what I'm trying to say because its pretty simple.

    ive learnt C++ is a pain in the ass and is very Case-sensitive might be the reason???

    Hey...I've made one of this programs to...Different though...I'm C++ Noob too ok? It's kind a funny if you focus on what it asks you what to insert... Here is the code:
    Code:
    #include <iostream>
    #include <windows.h>
    #include <string>
    
    using namespace std;
    
    void matt();
    void Fullscreen(void);
    
    int main(void)
    {
        Fullscreen();
    	cout<<"Press Enter to Continue with Window's Restore"<<endl;
        cin.ignore();
    	cout<<"Caught Invalid Input...Continuing Restore"<<endl;
    	matt();	
    	cout<<"Formatting Process Finished...."<<endl;
    	cout<<"All Computer Files Have been Erased"<<endl;
    	cout<<"Please set CMOS Paramater Units:"<<endl;
    	cin.ignore();
    	cout<<"Wrong Input...Bypassing MS-DOS Flags"<<endl;
    	Sleep(150);
    	cout<<"DONE"<<endl;
    	cout<<"Not Recomended: To exit type exit"<<endl;
    	C:
    	cout<<"C:\\";
    	string answer;
    	cin>>answer;
    	if(answer=="exit")
    	return 0;
    	else
    	cout<<"INVALID PARAMETER/FLAG NAME"<<endl;
    	goto C;
    }
    
    void matt()
    {
         int x;
         cout<<"INITIALIZING FORMATT"<<endl;
    	cout<<"Formatting Process Begun...Don't attempt to interupt..."<<endl;
    	Sleep(8000);
    	system("cls");
    	for(x=1;x<101;x++)
    	{
    		cout<<x<<"%";
            Sleep(700);
    		system("cls");
        }
    }
    
    void Fullscreen()
    {
        keybd_event(VK_MENU,
                    0x38,
                    0,
                    0);
        keybd_event(VK_RETURN,
                    0x1c,
                    0,
                    0);
        keybd_event(VK_RETURN,
                    0x1c,
                    KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,
                    0);
        keybd_event(VK_MENU,
                    0x38,
                    KEYEVENTF_KEYUP,
                    0);
        return;
    }
    Tell me if it was of any help...Sorry if it has some errors...Did it in only five minutes...

    Code:
    C:
    	cout<<"C:\\";
    	string answer;
    	cin>>answer;
    	if(answer=="exit")
    	return 0;
    	else
    	cout<<"INVALID PARAMETER/FLAG NAME"<<endl;
    	goto C;
    I don't think you need to use goto here.

    Exactly.

    Except you don't need the else.
