    Kill Startup Logo

    I would like to kill the static flying window logo that appears twice in every Windows startup sequence, but Windows help doesn't tell me how. Is it difficult?
    All help gratefully received!

    Just add the line I've highlighted to your MSDOS.SYS file, usually in the root directory. Don't disturb any other lines, or try to make it look like the rest of my example. That should do it.

    [Options]
    BootMulti=0
    BootGUI=1
    DoubleBuffer=1
    AutoScan=1
    <big>Logo=0</big>
    WinVer=4.10.2222

    Thank you - it took me a while to recall the usefulness of ATTRIB, but eventually I got there.

    Ah! Good work. Can't modify if it is it read-only! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Yup, you're right and that's what I get for not doing the "whole truth and nothing but the truth!" But, for future reference, if you have your folder options set to display ALL files, including hidden, you can change (turn off) the read only and make a change with Notepad or whatever. Of course, you'll have to turn it back on afterward and reboot. But then, I don't really know if you would have to turn the read only bit back on. Windows might do it for you upon reboot. Anyway, glad you got where you wanted to go.....
