I highly oppose this as being categorised as an eegg. It is just one of the sound tracks that plays during the WinXP setup and has been found somewhere in the WINDOWS folder. It is not something the developers have hidden or concealed in any way. It's only that this soundtrack happens to sound really awesome that it becomes an eegg. Ridiculous. 0/10.

I agree, it's not an egg. The title of the track even says 'Windows welcome music'

Microsoft also uses this music when you on hold are waiting for a human to help you with product activation.

This is not an easter egg. When windows xp is first installed on your computer (you put in the disk or use system recovery) Then this music plays. This is windows xp default install music, so its not an easter egg. As to why its in those registry files, hell, they had to put it somewhere it wouldn't be copied..

IS NOT an hidden music, because when you install Windows XP with a typic sound card that no need any program o device installed, in the installation when install finalizes, the sound card may be installed automatically and the "hidden" title music is reproducing on the "set the names of the usuary that uses the computer" setup. Note: i'm current speak spanish, the text is traducted

it is the same if you go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\oobe\images\title.wma from my computer, but you must have "show hidden folders" enabled in control panel

Though I agree that this is not an egg, I have been looking for this music for a long time and had no clue how to get to it. Thanks for the info, but not an egg!

YES i found the easter egg! play the music with a lyrics program, the song itself has hidden lyrics that are not played and are needed to be sung by the user. oh and the lyrics are funny tough.

Maybe it's the reference to OOBE (out-of-body-experience). Check Wikipedia for more info.

That music sounds like the music that plays in Freeonlinegames.com's Planet Racer. Also, I didn't have to do the stuff in the view tab to listen to this song.
