How do you create a custom windows login. By custom i mean changing the background picture and colours (Australian spelling)?

I thought about it, and i take it you are running 'XP'.

To customize the logon you will need to modify the 'logonui.exe', to do this click on the URL and download 'ResHacker' http://www.users.on.net/johnson/resourcehacker/reshack.zip using this program you will be able to open up 'logonui.exe' and replace the original images with ones of your own.

Make sure that when your modifying file you make a backup, and the images you are replacing are the same size in resolution as the originals.

I think there is more to it with XP and it is much more sensitive to being fuct with in that aspect, as compared to any other MS OS. I would check out http://www.annoyances.org for further information, they have plenty on hacking your appearance and a complete walkthrough on what files are affects, what to replace, etc.

Yes, I do believe you can use resource hacker, but there are some other important things to know before you start.

Edit: Finding the threads on annoyances.org took too long. Check out these links that sum it up pretty damn well;

and as mentioned in the post, there is good instructions and links @ themexp.org also.

i use a program from crash course software. it's nothing great, but from what i've heard it's a pain in the ass to change this stuff. windows automatically protects certain files, and they make it a pain to turn off the file protection (going through registry hacks, rebooting, changing more settings) if you really want to, you can, but this simple program worked for me.//

i wouldn't do it, it can fuck alot of shit up...and it may take alot longer for it to load if it's a hi res image- my friend did it once and it was just annoying as hell. I forgot what the program was, but you can get a program to do it for you-ill try to find out and then post it up.

Dude, Don't double post. ASk once and if anyone knows they'll tell you. Spamming our boards is not the way to get answers.
