    I'm really not sure if you can. You can change the manufacturer and all that...
    as well as the picture below the monitor w/ windows logo ...

    Tweaks

    I'll keep looking, but looking at it it seems hard coded as part of the box.... it's got no borders...

    Use Resource Hacker to edit the sysdm.cpl file (C:\WINDOWS\system32). The image is located in there.

    Mastershakes: You're welcome.

    msixteen: In case you didn't know... 'oemlogo.bmp' and 'oeminfo.ini' are the files you use for the manufacturer logo/information. If you need more information one of us can post it for you.
