i think he means the pre-boot screen you get on oem pc's (mine got an Hp invent splash screen) when u turn power on u get the screen for like 3 seconds before normal boot continues.

I prefer the editing of the registry to change your welcome screen, after all, what's the point of downloading third party software just to make a simple change. Once you have another logonui.exe that you want to use, follow these steps.

Start
Run
regedit
Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Change value of UIHOST to point to login file

i.e. C:\Program Files\Logins\logonui.exe

Hi guys,

Yes I do mean the actual boot up screen from Compaq, not the welcome screen. This screen comes up right at first, before the "Welcome" screen from my XP. Same kind of screen that DELL has before its XP welcome screen kicks in. Thanks for all your help, guys.
