How to change Logon screen Picture frame (before logon)

Q: How to change Logon screen Picture frame (before logon)

Hi there,

I have a windows 7 pc in a "domain", so when you get to the initial windows 7 welcome screen (prior to logging in as a user), you get a blank transparent Picture

Preferred Solution: How to change Logon screen Picture frame (before logon)

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to change Logon screen Picture frame (before logon)

Its ok, managed to get it working, seemed to work when i did it again, strange. No blank picture frame now, just a customised "picture frame" that appears prior to logon, just what I was after. Hope this helps anyone else trying to achieve this.

so nothing is missed/misunderstood! All changes made to your system

It is assumed that you know how to change/check ownership and
permissions on files. If not, please read at least something like
the folowing link, or check other sources!

Windows 7 Take Ownership & Grant Permissions to Access Files & Folder

Very well, let's get to it then

Step 1) Locate authui.dll in the dir "C:\Windows\System32\" and make
a backup in some other folder.
Note: the rights/permissions and the ownership will be
changed for the backup. Check out how the original settings
on the original file in System32 are before you copy it, in
order to restore them after the changes. I did it this way,
so restoring the original settings. I don't know if it works
without resetting the ownership/permissions afterwards!

Step 2)
Download a tool to modify resources like exe/dll. I used
"Resource Tuner" which comes with a 30day trial.

I'm running identical Vista Enterprise computers in a lab environment on a Windows Domain, and am having an issue with the user account picture.  Namely, on the user logon screen, just above the fields for the username and password, there's a giant empty frame where the user account picture should be.
I've already replaced the user.bmp and guest.bmp, so that our company logo will show up for users in the start menu after they've logged in, and will show up in the logon window for their user name if they've locked their session, but I'm unable to get the picture to show up on the original logon screen before the user logs in.
Some group policies we have include:

Interactive logon: Do not display last user name

Interactive logon: Do not require CTRL+ALT+DEL

Always use classic logon
So far I haven't found any good info that refers to this problem.  I've only seen two posts on these forums that come close to the problem I'm having, but neither touch on it directly and provide a solution.  They are:
Does anyone know if it's even possible to force a user account picture to be displayed on the Vista logon screen when on a domain?  Thanks in advance.

My method for automatically changing the Windows 7 logon/logoff wallpaper with every logon.

Step 1: Use one of the many guides on the web to enable custom/oem logon wallpaper, such as Brink's: Log On Screen - Change

Step 2: Copy whatever JPEG images you want to use for logon/logoff wallpaper in to C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds
You do not need to rename them -- just so long as their file extension is JPG or JPEG they'll be fine.

Hi there people!!!!!!

I was wondering if there is a way in which you can change the size of the user picture in the logon screen... What I mean here... is that, no matter the picture you use for it, the logon screen shows it at a "fixed" size... but sometimes, it is shown in a little frame, while in other PC's, you can see it bigger... I don't know if it's matter of resolutions... I hope I'm getting understood...

Is there a way to control or change that?

Thanks in advance people.

See ya!!!

Not that this is an earth shattering*problem (grin) but I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with their local account picture not showing up on their Welsome screen in Windows 10, 1607?

I am the only person that uses my* desktop PC and it's located in a secure environment so I chose to continue using my local account on my system vs my LIVE account.* In addition, my environment is secure enough that I also chose to have the system automatically log on so I don't have to enter my password each time I start my system.

Prior to the 1607 release my system would start up and jump immediately to my desktop just as it did in Windows 7.* After 1607*the Welcome screen momentarily displays before it displays my desktop.* When this Welcome screen momentarily is displayed, instead of displaying the photograph of me above my*first name*it instead displays the person symbol that Microsoft provides as an account default in the event that the user does not provide a picture of their own.
Now, I have a laptop that also is running Windows 10, 1607 that's setup the same way as my desktop PC and when I power up my laptop it does show my photograph of me above my first name on that Welcome screen.* I've double checked my desktop PC and the*my picture does properly show up if I go into account settings so I'm*clueless as to why the picture shows up on my laptop*during startup but not my desktop PC.* Again not an earth shattering problem but*I'd like to fix it if possible.**

Hi At my company we have Lenovo L460 with windows 7 and Cisco anyconnect 4.3 - we have a sim card with 4G data connection to a service provider(Telenor).When I have logon screen for windows 7, I can see with FN+F8 that the wireless WAN is "on", but when I try to connect/logon with the cisco anyconnect "start before logon" module the cisco say that it can't see any internet connection. And I tried to wait for 3-4 minutes so all services where running, but no connection.... If I uses the Wifi connection then it just goes smooth... If I logon to windows 7 and then start the mobile data connection at logon to cisco anyconnect there is NO problem.. So are there somebody who can say that:1.

Hi everyone,
I am so glad to have found this forum and to see that others in the past with similar problems have had them resolved, looking forward to nutting this one out
The computer is a win XP with RAID that freezes the mouse and the keyboard if a mouse or keyboard button is touched at the logon screen.
The mouse works fine until a button is pressed, you can even click on a user but are unable to enter a password due to the keyboard and mouse freezing at this moment.
NOTE: originally happened with a USB keyboard and USB mouse, using PS2 keyboard and mouse.
I am writing about my fathers old computer which suddenly started “freezing up” at the logon screen, after he wasted weeks trying to get it to work he decided that it was a hardware issue and bought himself a new computer.
Since then I have proved that there was no hardware error by putting an extra HDD in and installing Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Everything functions fine under Ubuntu and the files are able to be accessed on the RAID.
While i can access and copy files as needed from the RAID i would like to return access to the win XP install and let my father use it again.
I first attempted to run Live rescue CD's but they could not find the RAID drive.

- Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 – Didn't see any HDD's.

So you are able to run the machine  using PS2 keyboard and mouse.
Step 1: 
Download and install LogonFix
Click the Highlighted button.

When prompted select yes.
Allow the program to reboot your machine as well when prompted.
Step 2:
Download drivecleanup.zip to your desktop.
CLICK HERE to determine whether you're running 32-bit or 64-bit for Windows.
Once the determination has been made open either the 32-bit or 64-bit folder.
Right Click the .exe on the inside of the folder and run as admin.
A command prompt window will open telling you what has been removed upon completion.
Note: All usb devices must be removed from your machine during this step, except your keyboard and mouse of course. 
Step 3:

Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop.
Close any open windows
Double click the TFC icon to run the program. (Vista/7/8 Users, Right Click and select Run as Admin)
TFC will close all open programs itself in order to run
Click the Start button to begin the process
Allow TFC to run uninterrupted
Once its finished it should automatically reboot your machine, if it doesn't, manually reboot to ensure a complete clean.

I have upgraded my laptop from Windows 7 to Windows 10. During the procedure a screen showed that Dell Access had to be removed before Windows 10 could be installed.
It was removed, and everything else went smoothly.
Now during logon, at the login screen, the system will take a while to initialize, and say "Failure to initialize". Luckily I am able to login using a password.
I want to use the fingerprint reader to login. Dell says that this system have no issues with upgrading to Windows 10, but not now. So how can I solve this problem?
I will like to do either the following:
1. Get the fingerprint reader working.
2. If it cannot work, I want the logon screen to stop trying to initialize and just use password to logon.

Also, I am getting 2-3 nos of the same user on the login screen. There is only 1 user on this computer but I see mostly 2 but sometimes 3 of the same on the lower left of the logon screen. I also want to remove the extras. Not an issue, but I think it may be related to the above as well.

Vanilla Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop running Windows Vista. It has never had a login account or password protection, and is only used in single user mode.

Yesterday, start-ups fine, no password. Today, I'm presented with the user logon widow prompting me for a password, and cannot logon to Vista!

No-one has meddled with the laptop. Don't know if SP1 was automatically downloaded
and installed - whatever the factory defaults were from Dell. I've not seen any references to this kind of issue on Vista, but have heard about a similar thing with NT.

Any suggestions how this could have happened?

Yes - I know I can reset passwords using the NT Password Editor (http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/).

Then check "Use the welcome screen" and "Use fast user switching" back on (or just do the first one, your call). Then log off and you should have the normal XP logon page.

Hello emerald,

I am not sure if you can get that actual dialogue box or not, there are tons of programs that claim to change the logon but usually its just changing background pictures and what-not. You can experiment with some of them and see if you can get that specific one. Just be careful downloading them and make sure you google each one to make sure its legit before trying it.

However, I can get you close. You have Win7 Professional so thats a plus. Please type "gpedit.msc" in your Search (in Start) and then follow the first set of instructions here:

Next, if you want to change the background to that color, follow this:

Just substitute the picture added in the tutorial with a solid background or any image you wish.

2.) Search through the registry and find the following key:
Change the value of OEMBackground to “1” in the input field to the right of the key name.
3.)Click the “Start” button again and type “%windir%\system32\oobe” without the quotes into the Search box. Press “Enter.” Copy the image that you want to use for your new logon screen here. Right-click, make a new folder and name it “info”. Make a subfolder under this and name it “backgrounds”. Place your new background image here and rename the file to "backgroundDefault.jpg".
4.) Reboot your computer. Your custom Windows 7 logon screen should appear.

Hi guys

It looks like I'm in a minority of One here -- but I really don't like the logon screen in build 7057 -- looks pale and insipid compared with previous build (especially on a laptop with one of those Ultra-Brite screens)

It's the same screen you see when you lock the computer -- horrible.

Any way to change this -- sometimes there is a way to add an OEM customisation.

Anybody had a chance to tinker around with this and get a nice background

(If the Guy who used to develop the "Windows XP Black Edition" is on these Forums pleas do your stuff here on W7) -- If you've ever seen his excellent work you'll know exactly what I mean).


A:Minority of one I don't like 7057 logon screen - can we change it

1. Download LogonStudio Vista or LogonStudio Xp from stardock and install. (i forgot which one it is i think it is vista)

2. run with compatibility Windows Server 2003 (Service Pack 1).

3. just get the logon screen you want and put it on .


There you go hope it helps.

It took me a while to discover that the lock screen and the logon screen are not the same thing. Thankfully I know know that they are different things.

Whenever I startup windows 10 I always land on the login screen, perfect for security reasons (the password) because I'm the only user of my laptop and I dont want anyone else using it without my permission. But there is a problem, I get tired of seeing the same login wallpaper each time I log on. Like the lock screen wallpaper and the desktop wallpaper can automatically be changed to a "new" picture, Id like to have the same functionality with my login screen. Does anybody know how I can do this? And I dont mean to change the picture on the login screen to just a new picture but to cycle between pictures in a folder of images (or even better windows spotlight pictures (as in the lock screen wallpaper).

i've done a search and have come up with nothing for changing the font color...if i've searched incorrectly, i'm sorry, but if you could point me in the right direction i'd appreciate it!
