How to change the Windows XP System Properties logo and text

If you purchased your PC from a company like Dell, or even your local mom and pop computer store, you may have a “custom” System Properties logo and information. To make your PC a little more personalized, follow the instructions outlined below to change the System Properties info.

  3. To customize it, you’ll need an image. The dimensions should be 180×114 pixels, and the image must be a bitmap (.bmp). Save the image as oemlogo.bmp in your C:\Windows\system32\ folder. If that file exists already, over-write it.
  4. Right-click inside of C:\Windows\system32\ and select New -> Text Document.

    [Support Information]
    line1=whatever you want
    line2=whatever you want
    line3=whatever you want

    Remember, save the file as oeminfo.ini (not .txt).
