change Windows7 login screen

Hey there,

if you want to change the background on the login screen, it's now more easier then ever.
Just open "regedit" to find the key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft \Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentica?tion\LogonUI\Background". Then if not exist create an new DWORD key named "OEMBackground" and set the value to "1".

Then you need a picture at least less than 256kb in size an jpg as format. Name it "backgroundDefault.jpg" and placed it in the folder "C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds". Create the subfolders if not exist.

Thats it. Have fun with your new background image at login time.


regards,
Valentin
