Windows 7: Boot-up window change

Boot-up window change

Originally, when my comfuser booted, it showed the default black screen w/colors & the wording "Starting Windows". But I just noticed today that, while the default wording is still there, it also switches to show the wording "Protected by avast! antivirus".

I do have avast! Internet Security 7. The avast forums are down right now, but can anyone tell me if I can change/remove the wording altogether & just have the color-swirls (or perhaps even change that).

Thanks Neutron16. I tried the Boot Updater today & after some trial & error, I did get the "Starting Windows" & (I assume) "Resuming Windows" wording changed, but the "Protected by avast! antivirus" still shows up.

Still looking for this setting, but no success so far.

DOH!
Found the setting. It is on the 1st page of the avast! settings, I either missed it/fiddled w/it & not realized.

How do I change the Window Boot Manager text?
How do I change the look of Windows Boot Manager. I was able to use BCDedit and make some changes, but how do I get rid of the the tools menu at the bottom? I know it is nitpicky type stuff but some of these things annoy me and I know there has to be a way to change them.
