    Win-D to replace the Hector the Dolphin

    I've persuaded a head to drop having to have Hector the Dophin prancing around the screen as our internet safety protector but he wanted an alternative and was happy with using Windows key-D as an alternative.

    Any easier methods anyone using and failing that anyone got any ideas for a small slogan I can stick on keyboards/monitors/laptops to say press Win-D when something bad comes up?

    It windows 7 press the little rectangle in the far right of the screen next to the clock.
    Windows XP can have show desktop in quick launch.

    This is a political compromise

    The ^*(((&&& dolphin just gets in the way of things - more so on a netbook screen but they've enshrined it into their AUP and don't want to not have something to replace it with.

    Obviously in practice, if anything dodgy gets through the filters, the kids all call out to each other to say "come and look at this"
