    still searching to find something...
    For those who are interested, I found that the word "welcome" during logon, can be changed to anything you want. Also there are some interesting bitmaps there.
    The file conaining these (and other interesting things...) is logonui.exe in C:\windows\system32
    First make a backup! I suppose "playing" with such files is dangerous....
    If you open it with reshacker, open the string table on the left. In #1, you'll find "1033". Click this and on the right you'll see some interesting things, for example:
    7, "welcome"
    This is the famous "welcome" during logon. Change it and.. vouala!
    For a coder, maybe it would be interesting to check the UIFILE on the left. Open UIFILE, then 1000, then click 1033 and on the right there is some coding???
    Anyway, its a bit difficult to find a solution for the shutdown screen.... It seems it has (almost) nothing to do with bitmaps... It has to do with borders, backgrounds, elements etc.
    Someone who knows the things (a coder for example???) could find something...
    I'll keep searching though and do whatever i can, trying to understand this structure...

    Code:
    Auto Logon Windows
    Step 1: Click Start > Control Panel > Display > Screensaver
    Step 2: Uncheck On resume, password protect (if you have a screensaver set)
    
    
    Step 3: Click the Power button followed by the Advanced tab
    Step 4: Uncheck Prompt for password when computer resumes from standby
     
    Step 5: Using the Microsoft Powertoy called Tweak UI, select Logon > AutoLogon
    Step 6: Enter your username and password (if any) and hit OK
    
    
    Note: To suppress autologon, hold the shift key while the system is starting.
    Is this just like minlogon?

    no, minlogon logs you on as the root user or something like that. It doesn't start as many services or processes personal profile things I think, therefore making it faster but slightly less funcitonal (my acpi shutdown doesn't work with it). This is just automatic logon to an account, including administrator accounts, as if you had typed in the user/password yourself.

    Funny this topic came about cause I was looking for something similar,to remove the messages such as "loading personall settings" as u mentioned earlier.

    I know its possible, I believe its a reg mod, but I haven't been able to dig it up. if I find it, i'll let u know, but search, its possible. You can always resource edit these screens to be black as well.

    You'd be easier off (and safer) to simply cut the monitor. If you're going to blank the bios and other screens, whynot have it simply with a black or white background, and your car's logo on it like most oem's?

    Last time I checked, having the monitor cut on once it's booted up IS a real solution. Apparently we failed to read your mind on that one..

    If you had more creativity (I have no idea how to do this myself) you could try something like this:

    My monitor (tview) has both vga and composite inputs. If you had a device which constantly generated one image (your logo) to composite you could use some relays to hit the view button based on the computer state (loading or loaded) to swicth between the logo and the running frontend.

    Or do the same thing with a VGA input selector and dont hit the button on the screen at all.

    The real trick is finding a device which behaves like this...

    Okay mine does this by accident. I have a VGA monitor for my carputer and an epia MII1200 and I had a 5 inch composite video screen so I set my bios to tv out and i set windows to boot to tv out. Then i replaced my screen with my new vga screen. Now i dont see video untill windows loads and realizes it doesn't have a 75ohm termination on the tv out line. Then wamo! my vga screen turns on Not sure if that would work for other motherboards/setup worth a try though.

    On the other hand that only solves boot up I still get windows shutting down on exit.
    Um, I guess this is where you put something witty.WITTY
