I installed this utility called XPize and it messed up my boot screen. Insted to the normal bot screen with the windows logo and the scrolling progress bar, I get a full screen boot screen. I can't see any console messages like those defragment ones etc - How do i restore my old boot screen manually.

You can customize it in the XPize or remove the program.

Okay, I ran XPize and chose the option to remove the bootscreen. Now I dont get 'any' bootscreen just and empty black screen. I heard all these bootskin applications have to do with modifying the NTOSKRNL.EXE file. Can i just a get a fresh copy of that file and replace mine? Would it work? I am also not bale to see any of those DOS messages that you could see after the boot screen. Why is that?

You should uninstall and reinstall it. When you reinstall it, use a custom install and you can untick the boot screen.

tried that. I still get the blank black screen. I guess some other boot skin application has modified the NTOSKRNL.EXE. If one of you send me the file and i replace mine with yours, would it work?
