    So what is super's customised boot logo and login...
    can you post a link ?

    BootVis traces your boot time and it gives you a option to optimise your boot files I can notice only a slightly faster boot up time I have ALOT of drivers to be loaded.

    ?? You load the proggie, go to new and let it take a recording of a reboot of your pooter. Then you load the proggie again, load the recording into it and click on the 'optimise' option in the menu (fourth menu along I think) -- nice and easy :D

    WOW Superscrubber

    I liked the Matrix one better personally... but... Only lets you have two users.

    Still nice though!

    I want to make my desktop etc look nice, but it's very hard
    lol

    I'm artiscally challenged

    The matrix login screen can be found here among others :)

    The SS thing is my boot screen ie.when windows is loading, then it pops on to the login screen ........... the user names and icons I used to tie it in a bit (just do an img search for "blue pill" and "red pill" if you want the icons).

    How'd you get a red Scheme.. mine doesn't have that option and I couldn't see anywhere to create them?

    If I'm being dumb or it's obvious, skirt round it and tell me tactfully :D :D
