i tried this egg in Win 2000 and it didn't work, BUT when you are playing minesweeper and hit the escape key, your time freezes in the game and you will always have the best time score.

This was an egg that was added to Windows 2000 Release Candidate 2 ONLY. It was pulled out of RC3 and Gold Master versions. Too bad!!!

i think that was a anti boss tool, if your boss comes up behind you, you could hit escape and it would hide your program so your boss would think you are doing work, i think it also worked in solitaire
