Dear All,
How can I Implement a windows boot that will, instead of showing the windows startup screen, with the image and then have my program(ABC.EXE) start immediately after the bootup of windows.

Thanks in advance.

This image cannot be replaced with an application, but you can change it to your image/logo. As for starting your application at startup, you simply need to put a link to your application in the startup folder of Windows. Another way of doing it would be to put your application under the Run section in the registry. Here are the places you could put it:[^]

Hello! Tim,
Can this done on Windows 7? 'cause i am not using Windows XP

I updated my solution for Windows 7. Changing the Login screen on Windows 7 is easy, but changing the logo isn't as easy. The first forum link, near the bottom of the first page, has some suggestions that seem like they might work. Use at your own risk though.
