Well this is by far the weirdest thing I've ever experienced on windows. GRUB bootloader on Windows Vista? I thought I'd never see the day. Saw this file in C:\. Found this code:

uMXDfhfq gh1jKu7?þXfXfPVSfP   fX[^
Press space bar
Press your hot-key to start GRUB, any other key to boot previous MBR ...
Invalid previous MBR. Press any key to start GRUB ...
Cannot find GRLDR. to hold the screen, any other key to boot previous MBR ...
Error while reading MBR of drive (hd0 )
Invalid boot indicator in partition table of

Invalid end_sector in partition table of
No boot signature in partition table of
Error: Cannot find GRLDR in all devices. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart.
Try (hd0,0 ) : EXT2: NTFS4: NTFS5: NTFS5p: FAT32: FAT16: FAT12: non-MS: skip Extended: invalid or null This partition is NTFS but with unknown boot record. Please
install Microsoft NTFS boot sectors to this partition correctly, or create an
FAT12/16/32 partition and place the same copy of GRLDR and MENU.LST there. GRUp   0.97 /boot/grub/menu.lst

I did hear they have a Unix subsystem in Vista buisness? I'm running ultimate so this is pretty weird. Anyone know why this is here?
