Things like this are done in a OPK Install

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Windows

When a System maker uses the OPK Install Method provided by M$.

You need a OPK Install Disc to do this and you get those when you buy a packaged Bundle of XP Licenses. As XP is no longer being sold I doubt that you'll see one of these Install Disc's.

What about OEMinfo.ini?

by seanferd In reply to Things like this are done ...

If some of the offending text has its source in the file /Windows/System32/OEMinfo.ini, you can edit, delete, rename, or move the file. You'll need to be able to View Hidden Files to do so, probably.

Maybe I'm missing something here but wasn't the question asked

How this was placed on this computer?

It is done with a OPK Install of Windows as part of the process or at least that's what I use when I'm loading new systems with XP.

I thought the OP wnted to know how to change it

by seanferd In reply to Maybe I'm missing somethi ...

As the text from the OEM was obscuring the computer info. Unless I got lost reading the directions, in which case perhaps "over" indicates "above".

Regardless, if this person wants to know how to do this, he or she can edit the appropriate ini and bmp files. I'm sure you are correct as to how these files were customized in the first place. I can't say I'm sure what the OP wants, but I took it as a "How do I...", rather than a "How did they...".

Since there has been no reply, who can tell who is missing what?

Have a look in either C:\windows\system or C:\windows\system32, and you should find files called OENINFO.INI and OEMLOGO.BMP.

The bmp file will contain the business card displayed on the left of the window, and the ini file will contain the address on the right, and also the information displayed when the "Support Information" button is pressed.

Put info on your computer with Winbubble.

The program you need for this is called Winbubble...


You then put in what ever name you need.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
