This is the Internet Toolkit for customization and distribution. It will tell you exactly how to do it.

Have fun!

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..
