To replace or create a new startup/shutdown screen: (WinME)

Rename 'c:\logo.sys' to 'c:\logo.bak' (If one exists). Choose an image that appeals to your peculiar tastes, and open it in Paint (which should be hiding in your Accessories menu). Then go to Image > Attributes and type "640" in the width box and "400" in the height box. The file can't be any larger than this, so you'll have to crop, expand, or otherwise massage your image to the correct dimensions. When you're satisfied with the results, go back to Image > Stretch/Skew... and stretch the width to 50%, which will result in a squashed-looking picture. Fear not: Windows will stretch it back to 640 when the image loads. Select File > Save, and (this is crucial) select "256-color bitmap" from the "Save As Type" file listing. Finally, name your document "logo.sys" and save it in your PC's root directory (c:\). The new logo should now appear every time you start up. To change the "It's now safe to turn off your computer" screen do the same for this file, 'c:\windows\logos.sys'.

To completely disable (no logo screen at all):

1. Through Windows Explorer, go to Tools > Folder Options... > View tab
2. Select 'Show hidden files and folder'
3. Then find 'c:\msdos.sys'
4. Right click 'msdos.sys' and select "Properties"
5. At the bottom, de-select "Read Only"
6. Start > Run
7. Type 'notepad c:\msdos.sys' (no quotes) and hit OK
8. In the [Options] section, add a new line, Logo=0
9. Save and exit
