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.

August 06, 2010  |  By lionxlamb

 |  Version: Vista BootScreen 1.6

Pros

1.I didn't use it so no comments.

Cons

The # Product Ranking: #1 in Login Screens gave a fatal error to my PC.So I can't even dare to use product no#2.
It will be very helpful if someone can tell me how cnet decides product ranking after so many people complain about the product.

"Would not allow me to use program"

May 08, 2010  |  By rlaing313

 |  Version: Vista BootScreen 1.6

Pros

Absolutely nothing

Cons

Program wouldn't open after numerous installation screens. Also large numbers of spelling mistakes in so-called professional programs are very worrying.

"Didn't work..."

February 20, 2010  |  By Spuddoc

 |  Version: Vista BootScreen 1.6

Pros

Not much, it wouldn't work with Vista SP2

Cons

Wouldn't work with Vista SP2

Summary

I was looking for a simple boot screen program for Vista 32 bit with SP2. This looked exactly like what I was looking for, but I couldn't get it to work. I found a lot of programs that modified the mui in Vista SP2 were no longer working, though they seemed to work fine with SP1. I turned to Vista Visual Master and it worked fine. This looks like a nice program, and it probably works just fine with Vista SP1, but SP2 changed the kernel and the mui, so many customization programs no longer work...

"Doesn't Even Work"

October 16, 2009  |  By Zroknyr_Tropyakov

 |  Version: Vista BootScreen 1.6

Pros

Nothing. A novel idea though.

Cons

I downloaded and installed this, and it didn't work.

Summary

I am not new to software, and I am sure that I installed it correctly, however, this software is indeed defective. Whenever I try to run it, I get a window that says
"Attention. Your system registry corrupted or your have not administration privileges."
I have checked my system registry, and it is perfectly fine. I do have administrative privileges. Thus, I am not sure what the problem is. I can only conclude that something is amiss with the program.
