Hello Sam,

The shutdown splash screen is located in the windows folder and called 'logow.sys' along with 'logos.sys' (it is safe to turn off your computer).

Just rename it to a bmp file to edit it (make sure file extensions are enabled ).

Yet another small addition. You can use MS Paint with its text option to change the wording in logos.sys, eg.
...Just when you thought it was safe to turn off your computer...
