Add Customized Strings (OEM Information) in System Properties Dialog Box of Windows Vista and Later

UPDATE: This tutorial will also work in Windows 8 and later OS versions.

With the help of this trick, you can add some extra information such as your company name, phone number, website URL and a personalized logo or image in Windows Vista and 7 System Properties dialog box. Its very much same as the good old "OEMLogo.bmp" and "OEMInfo.ini" files in windows XP but sadly this trick no longer works in Vista and 7.

Here is a screenshot of Windows 7 System Properties dialog box with customized strings:

If you also want to customize System Properties window and want to show OEM information and logo in Windows Vista and Windows 7, follow these simple steps:

1. Type regedit in RUN dialog box or Start Menu searchbox and press Enter. It'll open Registry Editor, now go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

Under this key, look for a key OEMInformation. If it doesn't exist, create it.

2. Now select OEMInformation key and in right-side pane, create following String values and set their values as shown below:

Logo - path_of_OEMlogo.bmp_file
Manufacturer - Any_desired_name
Model - Any_desired_name
SupportHours - Any_desired_time_amount_like_24x7
SupportPhone - Any_desired_phone_number
SupportURL - Any_desired_URL

NOTE: OEMlogo.bmp file should be 96x96 in size and can be placed at any location.

3. Now open System Properties by right-clicking on My Computer icon on desktop and select Properties, you'll see your desired entries in "System" section and another section will also be created with the same name as you entered in Manufacturer String value. The OEMlogo.bmp file will be shown in right-side of "System" section.

NOTE: Windows 98, Me, 2000, XP or Server 2003 users, visit this tutorial.

  • How to remove the picture with genuine from Right Corner down?

  • Thanks a lot dear.............

  • @Black_PS
    This picture means that your windows version IS genuine...don't know why you want to remove it :)
    Does it bother you that much ?

  • I don't know if anyone else had this problem but in my computer the only OEM info displayed is the logo. I figured out that this is because of the "HelpCustomized" value that is set to 1. I changed it to 0 and it showed all info. I hope this helped someone. I think this should be added to the article.

  • Cool! Thanks! It is very convenient! Vishal, Is there a way to add 'Other Support'? I need it to display my computer business along with phone number. Your response is very important to me. Thanks.

  • Thanks a lot for excellent tricks.

  • Nice tip thanks.

  • Works in Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit. Thanks a lot!

  • It may be a little too late to respond back to Vishal, but after working with this, I was able to figure out a way to display my business name and phone number by simply entering it under the manufacturer's 'SupportPhone' after their phone number by putting it this way; 'or contact (your business name) at (your phone number, starting with the area code). It entered successfully! You can also add your business web link in there too. For example: www. (your business name).com. Unfortunately, you cannot add your business web link along with the manufacturer's website link under 'SupportURL' or otherwise it throws the manufacturer's web site off. You could also display your business logo along with the manufacturer's logo simply by working with 'Paint'. As Vishal said, the logo size should by 96x96. Don't over-do your logo with too much graphics. Simply move the manufacturer's logo up in order to gain space below it and then insert your logo underneath it. Resize it to 96x96 and save it. Then put it into the 'System' folder. The logo(s) will appear as how Vishal had showed the screen shot. Since I was able to figure this out, now it works for me! ;)

  • Worked.... \n/

    ...

  • not working in Windows 10 home version 1511 10586.164 os version

  • It only partly works with windows 10 1511. In the program version of system (under all control panel items) it works, just as it does for windows 7. However, under the control panel - System - About App it does not show the model number, only the other information.

  • ASRock uses 120x120 size, and it's image resides in C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\ASROCK_BADGE.BMP, so obviously it doesn't have to be called OEMLogo.bmp residing in the System32, as for it maximum size, i'm unsure, but you can at least go to 120x120 than just 96x96. Just a bit of extra info here I noticed when I changed motherboards, and it was no longer an ASRock, but the infomation stayed.
