"COW" ?

By geekchic ·
Have you heard of a computer saying "COW there are no pages left it is too deep Hit any key to continue"
This happens on startup.
Computers running Windows 98 or Windows 2000.

Gotta be a virus. Could also be a spoof from a user. You can change the Windows startup screen. Maybe someone got creative?

Sounds like someone has changed the default .WAV file that windows plays at startup for another. Go to the control panel, sounds and multimedia, sounds tab, and scroll down to "start windows" item. Look in the Name: box to see if the item has been changed from the default, "Windows Logon Sound.wav"
