Windows 7 Boot Updater 0.0.1.1 Beta

There are a huge number of ways in which you can customise your copy of Windows, but areas such as the animated boot screen seem practically untouchable. If you are running Windows 7, Windows 7 Boot Updater enables you to customise the animated screen that is displayed when you start up your computer, or when you wake it from sleep or hibernation mode.

At its most basic the application can be used to change the black background colour that is used for the animation, but it is also possible to change the default text that appears on screen. You can change the size, position and background colour of these messages to anything of your choosing.

But the real fun comes when Windows 7 Boot Updater is used to completely customise the startup animation. Rather than requiring you to use complicated animation software, the boot screen is made up of a series of still images that can be created in any image editing application.

Full instructions about how to screen images of the correct size and format are included in the program, and in a few simple steps it is possible to customise your copy of Windows in a unique way. All of the files that are edited during the customisation process are backed up automatically so you can easily revert to the original settings when you want.
