Thanks..:)

1. you can hide close, minimize and maximize in form properties.
2. Just Call About form in menu strip click event.
3. Set splash form as Startup object.
Project -> ProjectName Properties
Properties Pages will appear. you can select splash screen as Startup Object

What i means in Click Event of strip menu you can call about form.
Ex :

Private Sub MenuItem2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MenuItem2.Click
    Dim a As New About
    a.Show
End Sub

Add a new form to your project.

Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
                  ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        Me.Hide()
        Dim frmSplash As New SplashScreen1
        frmSplash.Show()
        frmSplash.Update()
        System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(3000)
        frmSplash.Close()
        Me.Visible = True
    End Sub
