image for 78% of computer users still use default Windows XP 'rolling hills' desktop image
78% of computer users still use default Windows XP 'rolling hills' desktop image: Microsoft Security Update issued.

Boffins at Lancaster University have determined that
78% of all computers running Microsoft's popular and hazardous Windows XP, are still using that quaint 'rolling hills' picture on their desktop.

Mike Frank told us:

"The rolling hills image is a popular one indeed. It's the Windows' default image, and many people are too stupid or lazy to change the image or get rid of it altogether. Microsoft have determined that the image is actually a security flaw and have released a patch to fix the problem."

Experts acknowledge that even though the patch will be available months before software that exploits the issue is released, that this will cause a major headache for many computer sufferers. I mean "users".
