How to Customize Your Windows 7 PC with OEM Brander
If you want to personalize your Windows 7 PC with your own logo, information and settings, you might be interested in OEM Brander, a free portable application that allows you to edit OEM branding on a Windows PC.
OEM branding is the information and logo that appear in the System Properties window when you right-click on Computer and select Properties. This information usually includes the manufacturer name, model, support contact and website. OEM Brander lets you change this information and use your own logo, which will be automatically resized and scaled to fit.
OEM Brander also enables you to change the Performance Index Logo and the Media Centre Logo, as well as the Registered Owner and Registered Organisation. You can choose from a series of preset data for a variety of manufacturers, or create your own custom settings and export them to a file for future use.
OEM Brander works with Windows XP to Windows 8 (and future versions if the process does not change). It requires .NET 3.5 Framework or newer and Administrator privileges. It is designed to be run as a portable application, so you don't need to install it on your PC.
To use OEM Brander, you need to download the zip file from this link and extract it to a folder on your PC. Then, run the OEMBrander.exe file and follow the instructions on the screen. You can drag and drop images to the logo boxes, or browse for them on your PC. You can also type in the information you want to display in the text boxes. When you are done, click on Apply Changes and restart your PC to see the results.
OEM Brander is a simple and effective way to customize your Windows 7 PC with your own branding. It can also help you fix or remove damaged or missing drivers with the System32 Drivers Manager tool that is included in the zip file. If you have any questions or feedback, you can contact the developer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the useful tools that is included in the OEM Brander zip file is the System32 Drivers Manager. This tool helps you locate, fix, and remove damaged or missing drivers on your Windows 7 PC. Drivers are software components that enable your hardware devices to communicate with your operating system. If your drivers are outdated, corrupted, or incompatible, you might experience problems such as poor performance, errors, crashes, or device malfunctions.
To use the System32 Drivers Manager tool, you need to run the Sys32DrvMgr.exe file that is extracted from the zip file. This file will open a window that shows you a list of all the drivers on your PC. You can sort the drivers by name, status, version, date, or manufacturer. You can also search for a specific driver by typing its name in the search box.
The status column indicates whether the driver is working properly or not. If you see a yellow exclamation mark (!) next to a driver, it means that there is a problem with that driver. You can right-click on the driver and select one of the following options:
Update Driver: This option will launch the Device Manager and allow you to search for an updated driver online or browse for one on your PC. You can also access the Device Manager by typing device manager in the search box on the taskbar and selecting it from the menu[^1^].
Disable Driver: This option will disable the driver and prevent it from loading when you start your PC. This can be useful if you suspect that a driver is causing conflicts or errors on your system. You can enable the driver again by right-clicking on it and selecting Enable Driver.
Uninstall Driver: This option will uninstall the driver and remove it from your PC. This can be useful if you want to install a different version of the driver or if you no longer need the driver. You can reinstall the driver by scanning for hardware changes in the Device Manager or by using a driver package in Configuration Manager[^2^].
Properties: This option will show you more details about the driver, such as its location, size, description, and digital signature. You can also view and change some settings related to the driver, such as its startup type and error control.
The System32 Drivers Manager tool is a handy way to manage your drivers on your Windows 7 PC. It can help you troubleshoot and resolve any issues related to your hardware devices and improve your system performance and stability. 248dff8e21
