    That's a fake. If it were a real system message it would have no maximise or minimise button, and the cross would be grayed out.

    The entire box is a fake man.

    Look at the icon, not standard. Its just a joke.

    But find a old XT(i mean really old) and unplug the keyboard

    I programmed "Mouse not attached to the system. Click okay to continue" into my program... just because anyone without a mouse attached trying to run a directx app deserves to get an error message like that.
    Away.

    I've actouly gotten that message (no keyboard) and it really IS real although that pic is fake...
    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.
