Enable Hidden (Aurora) BootScreen in Windows Vista
The Windows Vista
BootScreen is, well, pretty "blah". Why Microsoft decided to hide a
nicer boot screen (called "Aurora" - and I no, I don't know why it's
called that) that can easily be enabled by anyone - is beyond me,
only those with knowledge more vast than that stored in my humble
storehouse of knowledge knows. Those guys at Microsoft are strange
sometimes. But, at least, they recognized that someone was going to
figure out how to get to the better BootScreen eventually. It didn't
take long, did it? Now from the dungeons of arcane knowledge I
submit to you this tip to enable the better BootScreen that
Microsoft, for reasons known only to them, has decided to hide by
Press the Windows
Key + R and type MSCONFIG - then press Enter.
If User Account
Control prompts you to allow the action, click on Continue to
In the "System
Configuration" window, click on the Boot tab.
Select your Windows
Vista installation and under "Boot options", check "No GUI
boot". Press OK.
In the dialog that
appears, check "Don’t show this message again", and then click
Your computer will
now reboot, and you will see the Aurora boot screen with text
that says "Starting Windows Vista".
Caveat time: You may get
a "Windows Defender" error the next time you start your computer. To
get rid of it, enable the System Config utility using the tray icon
and the error will disappear.

Comment From Judith
I kept reading positive comments about
Registry Mechanic in
your InfoAve Premium Newsletter so I finally bought it for my
year old laptop. That was about six weeks ago, I've had no
problems with it and last week I bought another subscription of
it for my 3 year old PC. It found/repaired 908 problems.
Registry Mechanic is one tool I would recommend for sure. I use
IE 7. Judith - happy computer user.
A Comment From Jim R.
"...before I knew about
Registry Mechanic, I
downloaded a different registry cleaner. In the scan it found
almost 1000 errors. When I got Registry Mechanic, it found 600
errors. I have often wondered about the difference. Then I got
your wonderful 3rd e-book. You speak often of registry cleaners
that cause problems. I believe that I was saved from a problem
by going with Registry
Mechanic. You two are the greatest! Take Care, Jim R..."
