Question about HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One Printer
That's your windows operating system version popping up. If you click on START then RUN and type in (w/out the brackets) [winver], that is likely what you'll see.
Are you running Microsoft TweakUI for WindowsXP? There's an option in TweakUI to Enable (or disable) "Show Windows Version on the Desktop".
I don't know how it got enabled on your new XP build. It normally isn't enabled by default. But you can most likely disable it by installing TweakUI and, 1st, selecting the option, and 2nd, deselecting the option to "Show Windows Version on the Desktop".
You can download TweakUI from HERE. Look in the right hand column. Scroll down 'till you see TweakUI.
There's a registry edit for this, too. I'm cautious, though. I don't normally recommend registry editing unless the person is experienced in it. If you are, please, let me know and I'll pass that on to you as well.
