Missing logos

By 7nt ·
I have an old PII 233MhZ running 98SE and IE6. I have recently reinstalled Windows but ever since, my IE6 doesn't show the spinning logo in the top right hand corner (or any logo for that matter).

The motherboard is the older type which used to come up with the "It is now safe to turn off your computer" until you used the button to turn it off. But that picture has also disappeared now and there is only a blank screen after the "Wait until Windows shuts down" picture. I checked and both logos.sys and logow.sys are in the c:\windows directory.

I have tried repairing IE6 and checked for viruses without luck. The Shutdown supplement is the latest from the MS update site.

Here is some info on changing the IE logo from AMD.

AMD Animated Logos for Internet Explorer
and Microsoft Windows

Replaces the animated logo in IE with an AMD logo!
These archives include modified BMP files for IE.

1. Close all copies of IE that are open.

2. Open the "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\SIGNUP" folder and copy
the included BMP files into this folder.

3. Import the included registry file.

4. Thats it, Open IE and start surfing!
NOTE: This also changes the logo in Outlook/Express.

For the shut down logo, open the file logos.sys in paint, and make sure the file is correct.
Check msdos.sys, and make sure that the line logo=0 is not in the options section.
CAUTION: if the line is there, do not remove it, simply change it to logo=1
MSdos.sys must be a specific size to function.

It could also be a video driver problem.
Make sure that you have the latest drivers installed for both the motherboard, and the video card.
