I have just bought this computer from a friend. The company that he bought it from had installed a logo in the system properties window.

I like the idea of a graphic there but not some companies ad. Do you know how to change this logo? how could I go about installing a similar graphic on a different computer?

Thanks for the help.

The Answer

With your preloaded there are 2 files located in the Windows\System directory they are called OEMLOGO.BMP and OEMINFO.INI.  The OEMLOGO.BMP is the graphic you are interested in changing or removing.  If you make a new 16 bit bitmap, a white background color will be made transparent by Windows.  The OEMINFO.INI can be opened with a text editor and modified to your liking or removed.  This is a example of what the OEMINFO.INI could contain

Manufacturer=XYZ Computers Inc.
Model=XYZ 2001
