      A couple or three of neat registry tricks to set the forum off:

      1] Change that awful green logon background colour by altering the RGB values at:
      HKEY_USERSDEFAULTControl PanelColorsBackground
      0 0 0 = Black, 255 255 255 = White, etc.

      2] Display your own logo during logon:
      In the winnt directory, locate and make a copy of lanma256.bmp (in case you want it back)
      Create an appropriate bitmap and save as lanma256.bmp.
      Voila!
      Alternatively, you can edit the registry:
      HKEY_USERSDEFAULTControl PanelDesktop
      Change the value of Wallpaper to yourlogo.bmp (make sure you keep to the 8.3 naming convention)

      3] Set Numlock to come on at Logon by altering:
      HKEY_Current_UserControlPanelKeyboardInitialKeyboardIndicators to the value 2

    Please follow the -Lounge Rules- no personal attacks, no swearing, and politics/religion are relegated to the Rants forum.
