Win 98 logon screen

I have carelessly "lost" the Windows 98 startup screen. Where can I find the "logo.sys" file? I tried MS, both HTTP and FTP. FTP is too slow. Another computer running W98 doesn't have the logo.sys file on it, but somehow it boots with the proper startup screen. ????

The default startup screen is embedded in another file(can't remember off the top of my head) that is in the root directory. If you have a file called logo.sys present in
the C:\ directory then windows uses that. If one is not present
then windows uses the default embedded one. If you have a logo.sys file in the C:\ directory then remove it or rename it to something like logo.old and then Windows should boot up with the default screen.

Wish you remembered the file name. But thanks anyway! I wondered why one computer was able to boot up with the logon screen when there was no logo.sys file... You have answered my question to my satisfaction.

I think the default is embedded in Io.sys in your root directory.

Cool! I have downloaded a desktop theme called Win98 from www.themeworld.com and have my normal logon screen back. That is a good site! Thanks for the interest. Maybe see my alternate question in Computer games re: Final Doom....
