Okay so I saw some fancy boot screens on a website and I started talking to a friend of mine and he pointed me to logonuibootrandomizer and said "Oh yeah its perfectly safe, its fine if you dont like it you can change it back blah blah" so I used it, applied the new bootscreen. Oh yeah it works but I have to select it at startup and when i went back to logonuibootrandomizer to undo the change I made, it didnt work, so I still have to select a bootscreen before I can access my computer. I know it isnt a big deal but can anyone tell me how I can reset my bootscreen?

I know this is a dumb question but ts really bugging me.

did you follow the instructions on site

How to uninstall

� Go to Help - Uninstall

� Delete programs' folder

� PREVIOUS USERS (before version 2.0.0): Delete the LogonUIRandomizer.lnk from yours start up folder (if any).



especially the last part about deleting the .ink file

if you don't know where to find it just do a search for htat file and delete it

could be the cause..maybe not but always gotta check

if everything is deleted ie the program folders that you have put in there to hold everything and the boot files then it should not work, or be able to function whatsoever

I would recheck the folders to ensure that nothing remains of it, and do the search for the .ink file just in case

If you haven't turned off System Restore Points, that is probably the easiest way, otherwise I have gotten out of that particular problem by downloading this program Bootskin and then using the built in option to restore default XP login (StarDock is a pretty safe company). I know thats almost like compounding a problem on top of a problem, but it worked for me.

Well this may be a bit of a strange way to fix it but it may work. Look for stardocks bootsking tool. Its free and offers windows default bootup screen. Just install let stardock run. Delete the old program. Then if you want delete stardocks. I have used stardocks bootscreen tool before. Works ok.
