Put Custom or Your Own Name in System Properties Box

After some busy days, I am finally here with a cool trick for you with which you can put your own name or any custom message in the My Computer’s System Properties page.

The trick is very easy and using this trick you can even surprise your friends with your name printed in the System Properties box. If you are wondering what I am talking about then just see this screenie below.

Well if you are interested then here is the trick


1.    Create a new notepad file.

2.    Copy the following code in it

Manufacturer=Your Name Here
Model=Your Model Here
[Support Information]
Line1=Your Name
Line2=Your Address
Line3=Your Email Address

3.    Save the file with the name OEMINFO.INI

4.    Now just place it in the c:\windows\system32 directory.

5.    Of course you can add or delete a line from the code.

No need to reboot. Just go to My Computer’s System Properties box and see your name written there.

Do tell me how you liked the trick.

  2. Just Iwant to ask one think in c drive i having xp os after formatting again installed xp in c drive but when the windows starting that time showing two xp professional tabs one is working another is not working so pls say to me how to remove unused xp professional tab.

  3. wasim,
    If u have deleted the previous version of OS while formatting and yet it shows two OSs during boot time, then here is the solution…

    1. First make sure that you have removed the Operating System that you wish to remove from the Boot Menu also.

    2. Now boot into the OS that you want to keep.

    3. Right click on My Computer and go to Properties.

    4. Now click on Advanced tab and see the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings.

    5. Now click on the Edit button as shown, this will open a Boot.ini file.

    You will see something like this written

    [boot loader]
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS=”Microsoft Windows XP Professional
    ” /noexecute=optin /fastdetect
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS=”Microsoft Windows XP Professional-set up” /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

    6. You just need to delete the option of operating system which you do not want to use any more or is invalid. Click OK and exit.

    7. Restart to apply changes.

    One of the Operating Systems would have been removed from the Dual Boot Menu
