Here is the English version via babelfish and tinyurl.

"In other words, the employee of Microsoft author of these sound files
would have used a pirated version of the software "SoundForge".

Guys,

For your pleasure:

I know, it is in French, but here is my translation, it 
deserves to be known.

"Digging into Windows XP Operating Systems, the journalists 
of PC Welt discovered the following text at the end of the 
files presents into the 
C:/Windows/Help/Tours/WindowsMediaPlayer/Audio/Wav directory:

[see the picture at the link]

You have to know that DeepzOne is the nickname of a founding 
member of the Radium cracking group created in 1997 and 
especialized into the craking of sound oriented software.

To say it another way, the Microsoft guy who created these 
files used a cracked version of the SoundForce program.

Even if it is probable the Redmond giant has a license of 
this program (400$), it looks bad to see this when we are 
hearing everywhere about the Microsoft anti-piracy policy..."
