Changing The Login Screen Background.

Hey guys I was wondering will changing the login background screen do any damage? As I read a thread about a guy who did it and his PC crapped itself. So is it okay to change it? Same applies with the boot thingy. The 4 coloured dots coming together.

Absolutely no problem. There are a lot of free applications that can change your logon screen with a few mouse clicks.

Here's my current:

It shows my normal user accounts (Admin & Kari, both in English) plus additional three accounts in languages I sometimes need (Finnish, Swedish and German, respective languages by Windows 7 language packs). Logon screen changed using LogonStudio.

Thanks guys I was more worried about the effects changing it might have. Changing the screen itself isn't the issue but it appears that many people have done it and not had a problem thanks guys

PS Shaun thanks for the Tutorial. Will rep both of you for good answers
