    i still say aston would be better for the car pc because of the fact that it uses less resources than even windows itself

    I messed around with Aston and Talisman but almost all of the skins are 800x600 and up, and even the 800x600 ones are hard to use with a 7" monitor IMO.

    I'm using WindowBlinds, and WindowFX (custom shadows, fading windows). My skin has large titlebars and the buttons (min/max/close) bulge out at the end. I used StyleXP before but i think windowblinds gives you more customization, and skins things like the file animations (copy/move/recycle...etc), small shut down and log off screen, XP start menu......and it gives you the roll-up buttons

    Agree with that, Style XP is easy and can be configured to use no resources (or so it says) but windowsblinds definitely has better looks. It skins pretty much everything on widows, and if used with the rest of the stardock suite you can virtually create a competely different GUI. The drawback, of course, is resource utilization...

    This thread started by someone asking how to rid their computer of the "Welcome" screen. Back on that topic, does anyone know the name of the actual file that this image is stored in? I know the boot screen is in the ntoskrnl.exe file, but I can't locate were the "Welcome" screen is...

    I don't know how to disable the "Welcome" screen by itself. But you can disable all boot screens by going to msconfig, select the Boot.ini tab, and select the option that says /NOGUIBOOT. Don't expect to shorten your boot time with this option though, it will still display a screen, but it will be black. My advice is to modify the "Welcome" screen to something you like. You can change the colors, graphics and text to something that fits your needs.
