Is there a way to tell when the text on the Windows XP marquee screensaver was changed?

I have a need to tell when the text on the marquee screensaver in Windows XP was changed.  Does anybody know how to find out this information?

Do you have auditing turned on?

If so it may be in event logs

if you just need the date, you can dump the registry and check the date on the regkey that holds the marquee text. I think regdump will work with XP and shows the last modified date.
Download Regdump here
 If you need to know WHO, then as mentioned above, you would have had to have auditing enabled on that reg key.
