Default ...Thunderbug in Screen, As If.

...I cannot believe this.

I was just having a nice conversation with someone on MSN, and, right in front of my face - a thunderbug crawls smack into the middle of my screen and parks there.

I tried to lure it out with a bright light but the little bastard died a couple of inches from the edge of the screen.

Is there anyway to get this sucker out???

It's a Viewsonic VX924

...I am furious, i hate bugs!!!

A bug? Explain to me why you can't just wipe it off now that it's dead.

umm.. never heard of this ever happening before.. good luck getting it outta there. i haven't the faintest clue as to how to start salvaging this situation...unless... you get a wallpaper that conveniently has the same image as the bug in the exact same location on the screen.. then atleast ur wallpaper will make the bug look like it belongs there....just a thought..
