Windows 7: One last try, Get rid of User Account picture on login screen.

One last try, Get rid of User Account picture on login screen.

Hi 7forum!

This is my last resort, so please help me!
I have after a long time searching ended up here on this forum.

What I want to do is simply to remove the picture & frame on my login screen, only the password, my name, switch user should be left on the screen.

To clarify, I don't want to:
Remove the whole login screen.
Remove password protection.
Remove anything else except for that picture and frame.

Thats pretty much it, I would be really thankful if somebody could help me with this because I'm close to changing to linux just to get rid of it .

Thanks in advance!

I'm thinking a transparent .png picture would take care of the profile picture. As for the frame... that's above my pay grade right now

I believe that the Authui.dll file is replaced in critical updates. By using your 7 Installation CD, you can roll back to the last backup and the file will be overwritten and replaced.

This also, in theory poses an issue with this method, as if a system update rolls along, the Authui.dll file would be overwritten.
