Default Editing the Start-Up Screen

Hey guys.

Do any of you know how to alter the image that "greets" you when you are "welcomed" into Windows? Not the blue welcome screen, but the thing where it shows the loading bar. (I have SP2, so it doesn't say "Home Edition" anymore. That screen.) I want to have a unique loading entrance screen. For no reason... I'm just bored.

Thanks!

Well you can try wincustomize, it should have all kind of thing's to customize your OS, but i must warn you, if you don't do them correctly they can have very unhappy effects on your comp.

Oh, okay. Nevermind then. I was actually just talking about editing the image itself, and was wondering if anyone knew where to find it.

Ah, nevermind guys. It doesn't matter that much to me, and I really don't want to mess anything up.

By the way, technoman, I like techno. A LOT. And I wanted to change it because, as I said, I was quite bored at the time.

That is a good idea, its not worth the trouble and it might even slow your computer when its booting.

My user name is techno as in Music and techno as in computers like tech etc so i like techno, dance and trance.
