85. How Do I Remove The OEM Branding From My
Most new PCs are from branded manufacturer's and all of them
insist upon letting you know exactly who you
purchased your pc from by branding anything and
everything within Windows XP. They put their own
toolbar images on the windows toolbar. They include
their own title pages and a host of other, in my
opinion, un-necessary page branding. We know who
made the pc, we don't need it throwing in our faces.
These instruction will remove the OEM branding
from your machine. While you may feel that the
branding is intrusive, I should point out that
removing it may affect your pc's warranty.
Therefore, if you intend removing the branding
completely I suggest you leave it until after your
warranty has expired.
