A quick way to add support & branding to Vista!

This is an easy way you can brand Vista with your logo and add your support information to Vista.  You'll have to manually copy your logo to the system32 folder and make sure it has the same filename you specify.  Below is a registry file.  Open up notepad, copy the follow text into notepad, customize with your company information, and save it as a <filename>.reg file.  From the Vista desktop, simply copy the logo to the system32 directory and double click on the file and now your Vista system will have your branding and support.  Cool eh?
