Until yesterday, when using the "search for files and folders" facility, I have always been greeted by a little yellow dog. I am now greeted by Merlin the Animated Wizard and new sounds! Where did he come from?
I didn't select Merlin to appear, so why should he? I tried "change preferences" already but I gain no other character, although I can turn him on and off. I have no objection to Merlin, I just wonder why he should turn up now?
Christmascracker - I've tried absolutely everything. "With a different character" is accessible, as you say, but there are no other characters - Merlin will bow and do tricks and that's all! Clicking on Merlin himself brings you to three options, one of which is "With a different character",as above. I suppose I have to accept that computers do strange things now and again, and this is just another fairly insignificant happening!? Cheers.
As far as I know Merlin or any of the other characters are only available to MS Office & don't appear in XP ( I have Home Edition ) I used to get just a mobile paper clip & when I tried to "change preferences" I was asked to put the MS Office 2000 professional CD in and I could then install the rest of the characters.Where would I find Merlin on XP ?
