Halloween spooooky Windows Word Search

Halloween is approaching... Trick or treat! See if you can find all of the spooooky Windows terms in this word search puzzle. These scary terms and phrases have been hidden in the grid -- up, down, forward, backward, or diagonally. Within a word search puzzle, words can overlap; i.e., a letter can be part of two or more words. But beware, you never know who may be haunting you! Go ahead and take a stab at this puzzle!

When you've completed the word search, send me an e-mail and let me know what words you found. You're name will be placed into a drawing for a TechTarget insulated wine tote for two, and at the end of the month we'll pick a lucky winner.

Please note: This puzzle is NOT interactive...you cannot solve it on this page. Please print it out, and complete it the old fashion way -- with a pencil.

In addition, the spaces are all eliminated from phrases in the puzzle.
