    User reports dancing Bear appearing randomly(with actions!)

    At the beginning of term last week one of our languages teachers reported a dancing bear randomly appearing on her screen during lessons(with actions!), I had a quick look and couldn't find any evidence of this and thought nothing of it...

    I got called to her last lesson yesterday to find that "BBC Barnaby Bear Tours the UK" had loaded up from the recently installed Sherston Megapack... it turns out that all shortcuts created by the resourcepack program include CTRL+ALT+A as a keyboard shortcut, being a languages teacher she had been regularly using accents on letters and thus launching Barnaby Bear.

    Her various descriptions of what happens are hilarious, apparently it had happened at least 4 times yesterday during the day, she'd be teaching a class at it'd just pop up behind her on the board. She didn't report it again until a pupil told her it might be a virus.

    Guess I'll have to spend a while manually altering the shortcuts seeing her do a Bear dance is worth it though lol

    Oh god don't remind me of Bonzi Buddys....can remember the issues that it caused. Getting rid of it was a right pain! After search toolbars this is one of my pet hated peices of software!
