Jupiler (a good beer from Belgium ;-)

Maybe you read the beginning of the article.
The part for the logo is at the end :
"The other file you need to create is a logo file. This is a standard Windows bitmap file (172 x 172 pixels), saved as "OEMLOGO.BMP" in the Windows System directory.

Once you have created both these files open System Properties from Control Panel and your company information and logo will be displayed. The details you entered in the [Support Information] section will show up when you click on the Support Information button.

Note: To display a logo you must create a 172x172 (pixel) bitmap image and save it as OEMLOGO.BMP in the Windows system directory.

No problem, Longbow. Missing those points doesn't make the difference. I just wanted to point to ph48242 that next time he should split points.
