Nod32 splash screen

Nod32 Splash Screen:

after 4 years of having Nod32 on my rig i got bored of the robot splash screen in Nod32 so i decided to change it. sure, i could of just disabled it but since i have all the tools to change it i decided to take a crack at it. all i had to do was find the .DLL file that regulated the splash screen and then extract it and alter it inside photoshop. since nod32 has a green background, i decided to go white and replace the robot with another render. i chose megaman becuase for some reason i just love megaman and also the color matched the lettering.

i then imported the changed .GIF file back into the copied .DLL file that i put on my desktop for temporary storage with resource hacker (free tool used for icon packaging) and had to replace the original .DLL file.

since nod32 loads this file at start-up, my only choice of replacing the file was to go into safe mode. 20 secs later ( im exagerating here) safe mode is loaded, nod32 hasn't loaded eguiProduct.dll (eguiProduct.dll is what holds all the images for this software) which was what i was going for and it was time for copy and paste.

this took me a few tries cause there was 1 other image that sort of covered megaman's arm so i had to alter another .GIF file and replace that as well. all in all it turned out, from my perspective, very well and i no longer have to look at the old robot any more and now have something that i like.
even though this splash screen only shows for prolly like 2 seconds at best, it has given me something to do with photoshop other then making wallpapers or making signatures witch i was really getting borred at doing.

here is the result:

Hah! Nice, I was using NOD32 for a few years but got tired of paying for it.

Security essentials ftw!

Great job though .
