How to Change the Manufacturer/OEM/Computer Logo in System Properties

In Windows Vista, there's usually a logo in the system properties (right click "My Computer"/Properties) that refers to the manufacturer of your machine. The original post can be found here. This can be easily changed by modifying the registry. Here's how
  1. Create your own logo and save it as a bitmap (*.bmp) - Make sure the size is 120x120 pixels
  2. Open the registry editor (click Start/regedit)
  3. Go to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ OEMInformation
  4. Modify the "Logo" entry &/ the "Manufacturer" entry

Note that the "&/" symbol stand for "and, or".
