Windows 7: Logon Screen "Windows 7" logo remove/change?

Logon Screen "Windows 7" logo remove/change?

Hi all,

I'm specifically looking for a way to change the logon screen Windows logo from its (personally) ugly appearence to white (both examples attached), I'd rather not remove the logo because I have it in my head that a plain white logo would match the "Windows 7 Home Premium/Ultimate/etc" text at the bottom of the screen.

I have opened authui.dll in notepad although I'm not too sure if it is possible to edit this .dll with notepad. I really do not want to use a resource hacker program to do it. I mean, I'm quite happy going into the registry to activate my own logon background and as happy editing a picture to fit nicely to my resolution! Hell, I go into the registry to do what most merge a downloaded .reg file to do! I am perfectly happy customizing Windows manually as I believe its a perfect way of being able to undo any problems that occur.

Excuse the length of this post and an apparent rant, I really am hoping that there is an "offline" method of customizing the logon logo!


EDIT: I don't mean the Boot animation. I just realized it may seem so by the attached images!

Cheers!

Welcome to the Seven Forums
Posting the same question in multiple posts remove welcome screen is against the forum rules, and these are old posts. Next time start a new thread.
In a other post you said you are able to do it with Pro and Ultimate they must be different then starter I do not have starter so I am unable to help.
I have always wanted to ask this question how much time you do you spend on the login screen that this logo bothers you.

thanks for the reply Jerry.

I work for a software development company that started to manufacture smaller units to assist our clients in using our software. I want to create a environment where these units don't look like they are using windows in order to stop users trying to tamper with the unit.

The last step i need to create this environment is to simply remove that logo.
