hi,
you just need to run regedit and change or add the below:
"BrandBitmap"
and
"SmBrandBitmap" string values found under the registry key below.


Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar]

To create your own logo:
 
For a Static logo, open Paint (Start, Programs, Accessories) and create = a 256 color, 26 x 26 bitmap of your liking.  Save it to your Windows = directory (or anywhere else you like).  Then create a 38 x 38 bitmap for = when the larger one is needed and save it to the same folder.
Using Regedit (as above) create the two values (these are String values) = and then for the entry itself point them to the appropriate file = SmBrandBitmap is the 26 x 26 and BrandBitmap is the 38 x 38 Bitmap.
 
For an animated logo, open Paint and create a 256 color BMP file that is = 26 pixels wide by (26 x number of frames, e.g. 5 frames =3D 130)  Save = it as above.  Repeat for one that is 38 x (38 x number of frames for the = larger one.
See instructions above for using Regedit to point to the logos.
Close all open IE5 windows and open a new one.

Regards Barry

it's a very good answer, but I can get to create animated logos - probably because of the (26 x number of frames, e.g. 5 frames =3D 130)  part. If you can kindly help me out with this part, INTHE

for this my advice is get and use a copy of "paint shop pro"(you can download a 30 day trial or get from pc magazine cd) ,it comes with a "animation shop" tool for making these animations.
all you have to do is make a image 26*26 and do 5 frames , then make another but this time is 38*38 * 5 frames.
(this is very easy in animation shop just simple point and click stuff.)
there are also a number of other programs that can make animations,just see some of the sites like www.tucows.com etc..
