Change your Windows 7 Log-on Screen. ;)

Awesome little hack to personalise your Win 7 install a little bit more.

Step 1

Run regedit.exe and navigate to -

'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersionzAuthentication\LogonUI\Background'

Find the 'OEMBackground' key and alter the DWORD value from 0 to 1

(If its not there create it. )

Step 2

Get you image and open it in your fave image editor. Save it as "backgroundDefault.jpg" (Case sensitive be careful)

One thing though, it CANNOT be bigger than 256Kb.

Paint.net is good for this as it shows the size of the file before you try and save it.

Step 3

Open your C: Drive and navigate to the following directory.

'C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds'

Copy andf paste the image file into this directory. If it dosn't exist, create it.

Now, when you log on you should have your image there in all its glory.

Now I have shared this I expect to see at least on "Huge C**K" logon pwnage at the next lan.
