    Whenever u change the BOOT SCREEN using Tuneup utilities, it automatically create a backup and sets its entry in BOOT.INI file, which u see at the system startup!

    If u want to remove the entries, edit C:\Boot.ini file and delete those lines! (Boot.ini file is a read-only hidden file)...

    goto Tools--> Folder options--> View, then select show hidden files and below that u will find HIDE PROTECTED OPERATING SYYSTEM FILES... untick that.

    Then u will see Boot.ini file, then just delet the files.... before editing do make a back up of ur Boot.ini

    This is what I found in that file....
    When I erased all the lines and tried to save it gave me this error
    Cannot create the c:\boot.ini file
    Make sure that the path and filename are correct

    Please give me a good explanation as to what I am supposed to do because if I go wrong any where than my whole Windows won't boot....

    One more thing....I found a "hiberfil" named file in the same folder...it is a 275MB file and a system config file can't be that big so is it a file that is created when I hibernate my laptop??? If it is than is it safe to delete it???

    Edit boot.ini and keep just these lines.Delete all other lines.

    [boot loader]
    timeout=30
    default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
    [operating systems]
    multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect

    Good to know that ur problem has been solved!
    I already told u in my post that "Boot.ini" file will be Read-only :wink:
    U can't delete this file directly in windows coz its being used by windows! To delete it first u hv to disable the option of Hibernate in Power settings...

    ^^ First right click the boot file >> select properties >>> Uncheck the Read only option...

    Now edit it.. and then save it..

    Now repeat the first step, and check the Read only option..!!

    ^^ Its HIDDEN and u hv to enable "Show Hidden Files" option and disable "Hide Protected System Files" option in "Tools -> Folder Options" to see it. :)

    The easiest way to modify this file will be:

    Type "sysdm.cpl" in RUN and goto "Advanced" tab. Click on "Settings" button in "Startup and Recovery" section. Now u can edit the file easily. ;)

    you can also go to msconfig, boot.ini tab and then click the button that says "check all boot paths" this should generally clear out unwanted bootup entries.
