Re: is there a way to by pass vista desktop and boot straight medi

Just do this: go here and replace explorer.exe with
"HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell", "explorer.exe"

Change to:
"HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Shell","C:\Program Files\Windows Media Player\wmplayer.exe /prefetch:1"

or what ever.

I guess if you wanted to get anal, you could hide the taskbar, hide the
desktop icons, and use solid black for the background, that would give the
appearance of no desktop, other than that not much you can do I don't think.

You've pretty much nailed it.

But then it would make it look as if Windows was taking longer to load.
