Hi Dear,

It is not a complicated task.

You can do it very easily. To do so, you have to create two files.

  1. Choose an image and convert it into a bitmap format. You can do so by using Microsoft Paint utility. Resize your picture and save the picture as “oemlogo.bmp” copy this picture into C:WINDOWSsystem32 folder.
  2. One file that you have to create is a system file. Open Microsoft Note Pad and type these lines in it.

“[auto run]

Line1=Your Name

Line2=Your Address

Line3=Company Name” and save this file as “oeminfo.ini” in the same folder as above.

Now just logoff your computer and login again.

You will see that your picture is placed in system’s property.

If you want to put your picture in the System Properties, that would be easy if you are using Windows XP. Here’s how to do it. To put an image in the System Properties, you need two files: oeminfo.ini and oemlogo.bmp. You cannot just have the image file because it will not work. The other file, oeminfo.ini, must exist for the image to appear.

First, prepare the picture that you’re going to use. The image has to be 180 x 120 pixels maximum size, 256 colors, must be around 23k in size, and saved in BMP format (.bmp). Once you have the image in this format, rename it to without quotes “oemlogo.bmp”. Next, you need to create the “oeminfo.ini” file. Open Microsoft Notepad and enter the following:

[Support Information]

Replace without quotes “text” with the text you want to display. Under “[Support Information]”, make sure you enclosed the text in quotation marks. You can have as many lines as you want. Just label it correctly and in correct order like for example without quotes “line3”, “line4”, “line5”, and so on. When you are finished, save the file and name it without quotes “oeminfo.ini”.

Next, copy the “oeminfo.ini” and “oemlogo.bmp” files to “C:\WINDOWS\system32”. Once both files are copied, right-click “My Computer” and select “Properties”. You should have something like this:

Image in System Properties
Image in System Properties

Clicking on “Support Information” will display something like this:

System Properties Support Information
System Properties Support Information

And that’s it.
