Doom 9 posted this, and I thought it was pretty funny.
Doesn't that tool basically just search for all media files and then it is up to you to determain if they are legal or not? So it isn't suprising it would find something on a fresh install.
MS has licensed and bundled popular songs, music videos and other multimedia content as sample files with the last several versions of Windows, so this is really no surprise. (I actually kinda liked an Edie Brickell song that shipped with either Windows 95 or 98. )
That's exactly what it does. I have a feeling that parents who install this on machines that their kids use won't read the instructions where the MPAA states that it finds all media files, not illegal ones. There's going to be some pissed-off people if this deletes iTunes-bought tracks or backed-up CDs/movies.

I can just see their sophisticated "algorithm" now:
dir/s *.mp3 *.wav *.mpg *.mp4 *.wmv *.qt *.avi >c:illegal.txt
