I've been looking in a lot of XP tweaking sites and forums looking for an answer to this question... What I found was many sites describing how to replace the boot screen and log-on screen. I also read a couple of suggestions saying I should change "the way a user logs on" from user account settings... When I change the settings i either have to put in a password, which I don't want... or the "welcome" screen shows up. I happen to dislike both options! I don't want to select a user, or enter a password on log-on, cause I am the only person using this computer, and I have no need for the extra security... And about the "welcome" screen, I seriously hate the blue background used in that screen (and all other parts of XP) because it simply doesn't go along with the colors I've choosen for my XP theme! So what can I do to edit this "welcome" screen? There's also the other blue "shutdown" screen at the end, I want to edit that too. Editing the "shutdown" window would also be cool Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
