For Zonealarm go to C: Windows/All Users/Start Menu/Programs/Startup and right click the ZA Icon go to properties and add -nosplash to the end of the target line. There is a space between -nopopup -nosplash
I just found out how to remove the Ad-Subtract splash screen:
To disable the splash screen go to START --> Programs --> StartUp. Locate the AdSubtract file (+/- icon) in that menu, right-click on it and select PROPERTIES. In the dialog box that pops up you will see a text box labeled "Target". At the end of the target line TYPE one (1) space and the following text:
For example, the entire line might be: "C:\Program Files\AdSubtract\adsub.exe" -nosplash
Click 'Apply' and then 'OK'.
I thought it was quite nice of them to provide this solution, although they did say that upgrading would also do the trick (followed by a smilie).
