Any help on stopping the win98 logo on boot would be helpful, cant see anything that obvious to uncheck in the msconfig startup?

The file is C:\LOGO.SYS

If you rename it or move it somewhere else you shouldn't see the startup screen. I wouldn't delete it, just in case.

the startup screen is the logo.sys file stored on the C\: directory.

it is easily replaced,but not sure if it can be removed.

As obbit it's what I use click here Top one when you have downloaded it. Right click on the .Inf file and choose install, it will be in the control panel

search for Tweak ui.

when you have Tweak ui working open it and click on the boot tab and uncheck "display splash screen while booting"

logo.sys = Windows98 start up splash screen

logos.sys = Now Safe to Turn Off

Logow.sys = Splash screen showing "Windows is Shutting Down"

All of these files are in the root directory and/or C:\Windows

All these files are BMP files and can be changed in ie MS Paint; make a copy into another location before amending.

For schools I sometimes add to the start up splash the name of the school, and a comment please wait while files are loading...

And as the sad git that I am, I some times change the closing screens..
