Vista BootScreen

CNET Editors' review

You don't look or act like anyone else, so why should your PC boot screen look like every other one in the world? Take care of that quickly and easily by personalizing your system's Vista boot screen with this easy-to-use app.

Vista BootSkin launches a simply designed, easy-to-understand window with five large, colorful icons and some contextual fields and drop-down menus. A large, colorful nag screen also accompanies every launch until the app is registered, but a single click sends it on its merry way. This free app performed very nicely during our tests. It responded quickly to our commands, and creating, naming, and categorizing a new skin was a fun, simple process. We liked that we could create an entire library of skins, and could choose to display them either as tiles or thumbnails. We also thought including a Restore Windows Default Logo was a good idea. Installing a skin was another simple task. And we liked that some preformatted skins were included for those users who encounter a creative block.

We like the concept of extending personalization to the Vista boot screen, and we think most users will also like it. As we note, the nag screen is a bit pesky, but most users will have fun with this little tool.
