Uhm, I don't have XP but judging on 11001001's reaction, you think you might have found a bug or glitch in the system? I'm thinking you found one of those egg thingies that people talk about.

I'm moving this to GCC...
I couldn't find anything either, even with all options turned on (system files, hidden files, within files,...).

I wouldn't be too sure................I am running XP Pro SP1 and got nothing either.....................what happens on your machine.
i know this is not a newbe security question
After all "catch me if you can" sounds like a challenge.............some sort of jokeware perhaps?
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

I think it's supposed to be this Easter Egg.
The Original site that apparently "discovered" the Easter Egg. Now, looking at the date of the submitted Easter Egg, could a hotfix/service pack had fixed this "problem"?

Ahhh THAT'S what they're called.. Easter Egg's. Damn you MsM!

I'm all patched up, and I didn't get anything either.
