I would like to completely remove the logo that appears in the top right
corner of Outlook Express. Anyone who knows how to do this?

Type this command in Start/Run:

rundll32 iedkcs32.dll,Clear

This removes all the ISP branding in IE/OE.

Open Regedit.exe and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar

Backup the key. In the right-pane, delete the "SmBrandBitmap" value. This
entry specifies the bitmap used for the small animated logo.

Ramesh,

there is no "SmBrandBitmap" value in this registry key. Also: I'm talking
about OE, not IE. Removing the throbs from IE and Windows Explorer was an
easy task. It is just Oe which refuses to let the throb go ...

Copy a section of your OE taskbar next to the logo and save it as Logo.bmp
then use tweakui to change the large and small logos

drahnier,

Sorry, I have no idea. You may try this question in OE groups for more
exposure.
