Default An image burned in CRT monitor

I have a Windows 2000 startup window burned in my CRT monitor.
Is there any software that could lessen this effect? (By increasing intensity of light in the damaged area)

that is what happen when you leave an image on the moniter too long.

that's why they inventer screensavers.

Toss the CRT, along with some cash, inhale, and your new LCD will be waiting...

I'm in a creative mood....

desiboi: I disagree my LCD is better than any CRTs I have ever tried the only problem is that it was almost 1000 bucks.
