Startup screens prog

Ik ben op zoek naar een progje dat de startup en shut down plaatjes van windows kan veranderen, ik heb ondertussen flink gezocht maar ik kan het gewoon niet vinden, heb het ooit wel gehad dus het bestaat wel.

Iemand een tip?

Met paint in windows moet het lukken

Wacht even

We spreken toch over sys filetjes?
Ik bedoel dat beruchte Windows logo is starting up, als je windows op start en die stome kreet bij het afsluiten van windows , "windows is shuting down.

Een plaatje teken met paint snap ik ook wel maar nu nog een prog die em even in het opstart procedure tussen plakt.
snap os.

dit is voor win95, maar misschien lukt het ook bij een recentere versie. De tekst is nogal lang uitgevallen, maar hier is ie;

The Win95 bootup graphics is hidden in a file named c:\logo.sys. To see this
file, open File Manager, click “view”, then click “by file type,” then check
the box for “show hidden/system files.” Then, back on “view,” click “all
file details.” To the right of the file logo.sys you will see the letters
“rhs.” These mean this file is “read-only, hidden, system.”

The reason this innocuous graphics file is labeled as a system file – when
it really is just a graphics file – is because Microsoft is afraid you’ll
change it to read something like “Welcome to Windoze 95 – Breakfast of
Lusers!” So by making it a read-only file, and hiding it, and calling it a
system file as if it were something so darn important it would destroy your
computer if you were to mess with it, Microsoft is trying to trick you into
leaving it alone.

Now here’s the easy way to thwart Micro$oft and get the startup logo of your
choice. We start by finding the MSPaint program. It’s probably under the
accessories folder. But just in case you’re like me and keep on moving
things around, here’s the fail-safe program finding routine:

  1. Click “Start” on the lower left corner of your screen.
  2. Click “Windows Explorer”
  3. Click “Tools”
  4. Click “Find”
  5. Click “files or folders”
  6. After “named” type in “MSPaint”
  7. After “Look in” type in 'C:"
  8. Check the box that says “include subfolders”
  9. Click “find now”
  10. Double click on the icon of a paint bucket that turns up in a window.
    This loads the paint program.
  11. Within the paint program, click “file”
  12. Click “open”

OK, now you have MSPaint. Now you have a super easy way to create your new
bootup screen:

  1. After “file name” type in c:\windows\logos.sys. This brings up the
    graphic you get when your computer is ready to shut down saying “It’s now
    safe to turn off your computer.” This graphic has exactly the right format
    to be used for your startup graphic. So you can play with it any way you
    want (so long as you don’t do anything on the Attributes screen under the
    Images menu) and use it for your startup graphic.

  2. Now we play with this picture. Just experiment with the controls of
    MSPaint and try out fun stuff.

  3. When you decide you really like your picture (fill it with frightening
    hacker stuph, right?), save it as c:\logo.sys. This will overwrite the
    Windows startup logo file. From now on, any time you want to change your
    startup logo, you will be able to both read and write the file logo.sys.

  1. If you want to change the shut down screens, they are easy to find and
    modify using MSPaint. The beginning shutdown screen is named
    c:\windows\logow.sys. As we saw above, the final “It’s now safe to turn off
    your computer” screen graphic is named c:\windows\logos.sys.

  2. To make graphics that will be available for your wallpaper, name them
    something like c:\windows\evilhaxor.bmp (substituting your filename for
    “exilhaxor” – unless you like to name your wallpaper “evilhaxor.”)

Evil Genius tip: The Microsoft Windows 95 startup screen has an animated bar
at the bottom. But once you replace it with your own graphic, that animation
is gone. However, you can make your own animated startup screen using the
shareware program BMP Wizard. Some download sites for this goodie include:

Now the trouble with using one of the existing Win95 logo files is that they
only allow you to use their original colors. If you really want to go wild,
open MSPaint again. First click “Image,” then click “attributes.” Set width
320 and height to 400. Make sure under Units that Pels is selected. Now you
are free to use any color combination available in this program. Remember to
save the file as c:\logo.sys for your startup logo, or c:\windows\logow.sys
and or c:\windows\logos.sys for your shutdown screens.

But if you want some really fabulous stuff for your starting screen, you can
steal graphics from your favorite hacker page on the Web and import them
into Win95’s startup and shutdown screens. Here’s how you do it.

  1. Wow, kewl graphics! Stop your browsing on that Web page and hit the
    “print screen” button.

  2. Open MSPaint and set width to 320 and height to 400 with units Pels.

  3. Click edit, then click paste. Bam, that image is now in your MSPaint program.

  4. When you save it, make sure attributes are still 320X400 Pels. Name it
    c:\logo.sys, c:\windows\logow.sys, c:\windows\logos.sys, or
    c:\winodws\evilhaxor.bmp depending on which screen or wallpaper you want to
    display it on.

Of course you can do the same thing by opening any graphics file you choose
in MSPaint or any other graphics program, so long as you save it with the
right file name in the right directory and size it 320X400 Pels.

Oh, no, stuffy Auntie Suzie is coming to visit and she wants to use my
computer to read her email! I’ll never hear the end of it if she sees my
K-Rad Doomsters of the Apocalypse startup screen!!!

Here’s what you can do to get your boring Micro$oft startup logo back. Just
change the name of c:logo.sys to something innocuous that Aunt Suzie won’t
see while snooping with file manager. Something like logo.bak. Guess what
happens? Those Microsoft guys figured we’d be doing things like this and hid
a copy of their boring bootup screen in a file named “io.sys.” So if you
rename or delete their original logo.sys, and there is no file by that name
left, on bootup your computer displays their same old Windows 95 bootup screen.

Evil genius tip: Want to mess with io.sys or logo.sys? Here’s how to get
into them. And, guess what, this is a great thing to learn in case you ever
need to break into a Windows computer – something we’ll look at in detail
in the next section.

Click “Start” then “Programs” then “MS-DOS.” At the MS_DOS prompt enter the


Now they are totally at your mercy, muhahaha!
