In XP, on the system properties under the general tab; you can have the words Manufactured and Supplied By: then a custom logo.

Does anybody know which registry key controls this?

Also, at least no1 can tell me to search the forums now :) there isn't anything to search!!

Afaik, it's not in the registry at all. At least on win9x it was in two files, oemlogo.bmp (the image) and oeminfo.txt or .inf or something similar. They are somewhere in the windows directory Just make them and copy them to the right place and they will show up.

They are located in the system32 dir within the windows dir and called oeminfo.ini and oemlogo.bmp. If they are not there i could email you the oeminfo.ini if you want, so you can change it to what you want.

If you have a Dell system, you can download the zip file for these at :

Extract the oemlogo.bmp and oeminfo.ini files to the Windows/system32 directory. You'll need to edit the oeminfo,ini file to add your service tag number and express service code for your specific machine.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
