    If you have XP Pro, you can use the group policy editor.

    Ditto on Win2k (search for file filegpedit.msc)

    Hello Everybody
    To show a bitmap on internet explorer toolbars, find the key

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar]

    Add a new String Value of "BackBitmap" and set the value to the path and name of bitmap file you wish to use i.e "c:\images\fox.bmp")

    Restart Internet Explorer:)

    I do have XP pro and tweak UI. Watch out with tweak UI, don't change anything advanced (such as hiding a username on the welcome screen) because I had to reinstall win xp because it screwed it up somehow with the hidden username thing.

    The reason why I don't use tweak UI or the group policy thing is I have to find a good picture to overlay and it would be so much easier if I could just get a program with a built in set of pictures to choose from.

    Edit: I think I'll try adryn's way, looks like there's all sorts of stuff you can change there... that microsoft internet explorer thing on the top bar always bothered me...
