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.
