Change the default Windows boot splash screen
When your computer boots up, your Windows boot splash screen probably looks like the one above. However, this can easily be changed with a free program named BootSkin (screenshot below). BootSkin is extremely easy to use and comes by default with some additional splash screens. BootSkin also allows you to install additional splash screens from your local computer. Over 30 additional splash screens are available for free at the BootSkin homepage. If you want to spruce up, customize, or make your personal theme more complete, this is a great (and easy) way to do so. Here is a post about how to create your own custom boot skin.
