    Hello.

    I read on a techtv.com (the screen savers or call for help can't remember which) article that you can change the support information (including the image) that is on the "general" tab of the "system properties." How do I change that information and the "support information"? How can I change the image? I know you can because I have read the article, but can't find it?

    Somebody help please!
    Thank You
    JD.

    Is this what you are looking for?

    Your own OEM logo

    When you look at the system properties window (right-click My Computer and select 'Properties' or push the Pause and Windows keys together), the computer manufacturer probably has their logo and information on the bottom half under the 'Registered To' information. To put your own stuff there:
    1. Get a bitmap, size it to 180x114 pixels, name it oemlogo.bmp and move it to your \windows\system folder.
    2. Open Notepad and create a file similar to this, replacing the text to the right of the equal sign with your own text:
    [general]
    Manufacturer=Omigosh Spatula Co. Limited
    Model='75 AMC Gremlin
    [Support Information]
    Line1=For tech support:
    Line2=Go to http://www.fiveanddime.net/notes.html
    Line3=line3
    Line4=line4
    Line5=line5
    Line6=This file is c:\windows\system\oeminfo.ini


    Save it as oeminfo.ini in your \windows\system folder.
    If you have problems, change the bitmap dimensions to 160x120
