I want to know how you'd do it, I know there's programmes like low orbit ion cannon but can DDOSs be done with command prompt for example? Any information would be much appreciated.

Botnets are when certain software, be it a virii, trojan horse, or any other type of software use a certain computers network connection to participate in a DDOS attack. So, yes, you do need to have them download and run a program onto their computer (although it would be possible to gain access to their computer and upload and run it yourself). Also, there are plenty of ways to get around antivirus software.

My example there wouldn't be a botnet of course but is getting it running the same idea?
Eh? You just described a virus that would only infect one computer, however the trick is getting it to spread to multiple others. Also, in order to control your botnet, you need the program to be able to send/receive messages to/from you and then be able to act on those messages (such as sending them all the command: "go to website x.x.com/images.html" and then for them to actually do that.).

It clogs up systems by forcing connections to stay open for X amount of time, so you don't need a botnet. I really don't know much about it, I only recently heard about it.
