C:\windows\system32
the image should be called oemlogo.bmp

rename this file to oemlogo-old.bmp
open up "oemlogo.bmp" using paintbrush and save again as oemlogo.bmp making sure that it is going to be saved in the same place ie c:\windows\system32
once done either edit the oemlogo.bmp file or create a new image file, making sure that your new image file is the same pixle size as the origional oemlogo.bmp file.

my current oemlogo.bmp file is quite small, but experement to see what is best.

I initially found out how to do this from the following link. not all systems have this oemlogo.bmp file but you should be able to create one and save it in the system32 folder without issue.

I don't see my folders on my external hard disk. When I scan the disk for viruses I can see my folders while they are scanned. When I add new folders to it they don't disappear.


Hi,
It is due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, that is why user can't see the files. This can be fixed and data would be available to you. However, there are number of steps involved.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select 'SHOW HIDDEN FILES & FOLDERS' and uncheck/ Deselect 'HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM FILES'.

It would show the hidden files/ folders, if the system not infected Otherwise, from the clean/ virus free system you can see your data and copy all the required files/data. Select the required files and right-click and change the properties of the file by un-checking the hidden attribute. Please note that you can not change the properties (hidden attribute of the files) if the files are marked as system files. To change the attribute of such folders you can download and use iReset.
Dolwnload iReset and drag and drop the files/ folders on to its window to fix.

Also, make sure that you have a good antivirus installed and its updated. Scan your system and clean it. As long the the virus is there on you PC, you cannot get it fixed. However, if new folders don't disappear, it is likely that you would be able to fix the issue.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I have downloaded the ISO file but not sure how to use it to install the windows 7 which is an upgrade version Many thanks


An ISO file is a CD or DVD image. You burn a disc with this image using a program like CDBurnerXP (a good, free program which is the one I use), or Nero or Roxio which often come preloaded on a system.

If the system has been set up correctly, ISO files should start the burner program for you when you double-click on one. Then you just need to have a disc in the burner and off it goes. Otherwise, you need to start the burning program manually and select the "burn an image" option. Specify the ISO file when you are asked for the image to burn. Do burn an ISO file to a disc using the "create a data disc" option. People often do this and then wonder why the result isn't correct.

Once you converted the ISO image to a real disc, you can either keep it or delete it.

Ok, right click on the computer icon and choose properties, then click on advanced system settings, a system properties window will appear, choose the computer name tab and click on network ID, you can change the network ID to home or work.
The computer may ask to restart so that the changes are made in the registry

Good luck and kind regards

Hi Bubbabear64


If this a Royale Version of Windows XP, it should indicate that on the properties screen. The serial number should be on this properties screen as well.

There isn't anyway to change the properties screen. It's a proprietary screen that Microsoft use to read the serial number of the software, Bios settings of your computer, as well the processor and available memory you have.

Since these fields aren't populated, are you sure this is a genuine version of Windows XP?
