I have no idea if this is even possible but I was thinking of changing the start up screen from dull.png to 2.png... if it is even possible then let me know how...
I don't have vista
I got windows XP SP2...
Thanks

I went a little bit overboard on the dull boring windows start up screen with paint.net lol
but still reading them is funny... if anyone likes my new one, I'm calling it
"Ignite User"
if you like it let me know if you use it... muahahahaha let me know...

I find this very funny:
5. At the command prompt, type "yes" (no quotes). Press Enter to overwrite the original file.For those who don't get it, this is a "Do you want to overwrite this file with the new one? [y/N]" type prompt. That is to say, the page is providing instructions on how to follow instructions.

Ok, I did tried both of those and I don't think your getting what I am saying...
Please look at the attachments before you say stuff, because I'm not looking for a boot screen, i'm looking for what I attached in my first post...

Thanks!

Here is a program that you can use to customize the "Welcome Screen" in Windows XP. I haven't played with it yet, but have heard some good things from a few of my friends who have used it.
