    How could you not??? It's the same boring thing they keep on all the school computers. They could at least change it to something a bit more exciting!

    Microsoft should never ever send out the default screen the exact same for each and every computer legally loaded with their software. Microsoft should keep exacting records keying the exact digital decoding of the screen to the exact disk of software.

    A quite boring and unimaginative choice by Microsoft. It seems that most people who have submitted responses to this are like me - changed it was soon as Windows XP is installed. Anything was better.

    Sadly I do. Fortunately it's only on my PC about 1 minute, (and ONLY after a clean install of XP,) long enough for me to change it! First time I saw it, I was expecting the Tele-Tubbies to come bounding over the *&^$%& hill.

    Actually, that was payback. The VC about to get his brain splattered had just murdered the police officer's family. That would be the guy with the pistol.

    Thats false the little guy is asking directions and the guy is pointing with the pistol which direction he should go , it all quite harmless .In the meantime Ron and nancy at the drive in movie are trying to remember their names . Momie and ron that is. reagan lost his mind

    A favourite photo of theirs shows General Loan, commander of the South Vietnamese National Police, shooting a captured Viet Cong infiltrator on the street, in the aftermath of the Tet Offensive. (You remember the Hanoi's Tet offensive, the result of which was the utter destruction of the Viet Cong and a devastating defeat for Hanoi's troop). Just as journalists lied about Kim Phuc they lied about General Loan.

    General Loan's so-called innocent victim was in fact the leader of a Hanoi assassination team that was given a death list of leading members of the Vietnamese government, General Loan among them. Unable to find Loan they went to the house of a Colonel in the National Police and murdered him instead. They then set about cutting the throats of Colonel's wife and his six youngsters. (By the way, this is the kind of dirty deed that gives our diseased leftists a vicarious thrill).

    My bad. The murdered officer and family was the target of opportunity the VC murderers found when they were unable to locate the guy with the pistol above.
