Clock Video in Windows Folder? WTF¿

  1. Right well my friend pointing this out to me yesterday. C:\WINDOWS\clock.avi
    It's a video of a clock in the Windows folder. It goes around and counts from 1 through to 12. I find it very strange and have never actually seen it used in windows anywhere.

    Does anyone know what purpose it serves or the like?

    BTW im running XP Home SP2.

    Oh yeah, I remember that vid :D

    I don't know if it actually serves any particular purpose, but it's very strange when you first find it.

    It's a normal part of Windows that it decides to carry around for no apparent reason, like the rest of itself *laughs to self*

    I don't think so, but if it's a small file you might as well leave it ;)

    A message might come up saying "You have deleted the clock video, the most important part of Windows. You will now be sued, mocked and poked with sticks. Oh, and Windows won't work any more and your keyboard is disabled.

    Press F1 to close this message and shut down the computer."
