The LOGO.SYS is the Wait screen you see when you boot Win95, LOGOW.SYS is the Wait screen you see after you shut down Win95, and LOGOS.SYS is the "It's now safe to turn off your computer" screen. These files should be in the root of your windows directory.  Do a find for logo.sys, if you can't find it, chances are it's using the default which is located in the io.sys file.  Although each has a SYS extension, these files are standard bitmaps you can modify with the Paint applet to create custom StartUp and Shutdown screens.   You can create your own bitmaps or use available ones on the internet for the startup and shut down screens.  If you create it, the image has to be 320x400 resolution.
If you'd like to change the StartUp screen, create a LOGO.SYS file (whether you already have one or not) and put it in your ro ot directory.  The same goes for the rest.

This site has some cool utilities to use for this:
