Hello!
This may seem very unimportant...but I love that my bootup screen says *XP
Professional.* I converted to SP2, but because of some concern about duplicated
applications (firewall, antivirus, popups) because I see them as ways to slow
down operations, I went back to SP1. But recently,some very nice MS-MVPs have
suggested I was spitting upwind by not staying with SP2. On the whole I would
agree, but SP2's opening screen only says *XP* not *XP Professional.* Sure it
may be an ego trip, but is there any way to convert to SP2 and retain the SP1
opening screen?

Hi,

No, not really, the image used is embedded in the new file set. Reverting
would mean using an improper version of the file, and would likely cause a
number of other issues.

No you cannot do this.
