Windows "Windows XP became the most effective Microsoft Bob deployment tool ever developed. And if you go way back into your closet, dig out your copy of Windows XP, and can somehow channel the right spirits to mash your hands on the keyboard in exactly the right way, then out of your encryption program will come a copy of Microsoft Bob."

Bob

I know Bob gets no love, but when I bought my first PC which was a Packard Bell, they had similar software to Bob on it. At first I kept it on there because I didn't know any better and it was a way to navigate to the system. Then when I started poking around more and installing games and needed the memory it soon came up. It also gave me a faster boot up time with it disabled. I wonder if it was the same code as Bob or if they just coded it themselves and took the Bob idea.
