    where it is actually located i am unsure however you can get many new screens and programs to change them from places like www.download.com etc just do a quick search for them on google too
    Just because you don\'t see it doesn\'t mean it\'s not there

    In like your windows directory..(I believe.. not sure on the dir totally)
    the files are logo_w.sys and logo_s.sys or else logow.sys and logos.sys but I believe they have the _.... heh they're easy to find tho..when you know the basics...

    Acording to http://www.geocities.com/SunsetStrip...761/tips1.html

    logo.sys -> Starup Screen
    logow.sys -> Prior to shutdown
    logos.sys -> final shutdown (Now safe to turn off computer)

    I thought I might add, A shell launcher called ShellON from http://www.indexo.pionexnet.co.uk/su...dldshellon.htm has a built in start screen chooser, it lets you choose a difernt set of startup and shutdown screens for each of your shells. A nice shell called Cloud 9ine can be found at http://www.cloud9ine.com/main.asp

    nope on an XP system you need to "Hack" an executable,
    but there is a scriptkiddy tool too..

    it used to be @ www.themexp.org but that seems to be down atm..
    just a moment...
    ThemeXP is switching to a new server platform to finally rid of all these access hiccups! You'll enjoy quick-loading web pages and fast downloads momentarily; please bear with us!

    Thanks,

    On windows 98 you will have to create the logo.sys and place in in the systemroot (c )otherwise the picture gets loaded from io.sys.
    Make sure the picture is the correct size (the same as logow.sys)
    In XP (like the_JinX said) you would have to hack the executable logonui.exe.
