You know the blue screen in Windows XP that shows and says 'welcome' just before it loads your desktop? I want to change what it says when it starts up. Does anyone know a good way to do this? I dont care about registry changes, I know my way around in there ok. Thanks.

Ok I got the program but how do I change the screen? All it seems to want to let me do is change the entire screen, all I want is to change the word 'welcome'.

I don't think it is possible to only change the text in the welcome screen. The welcome screen is an "image", and you have to change the image. You need to make a new image with the text you want to appear.
