Being curious, on Win2k, I copied cmd.exe (from winnt\system32) as xyz.pif;
then (right-click) Properties, Program crashes explorer.

I'd say that's because you changed the filetype; pif files simply
contain information on how to handle a DOS executable; they aren't a
program themselves. All you did was make it get confused and kill
itself.
