How about running Maya with the -nosplash option. You can add it to the shortcut or whatever.

"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Maya2013\bin\maya.exe" -nosplash

Damn, I saw a post about this from 2002, I tried it and it didn't work, and this switch doesn't appear in maya.exe switches.
And now it's working... :bounce:

Thanks @3Dmonkey!
