Hello Sayan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Not sure, but luckily for you, the Lock screen in Windows 8 will have this for you.

I tried it and it does exactly what it says. It's a desktop clock, but I need a clock on the login screen.

Softpedia is very good about screening programs, so it should be safe to use.

Yes but it doesn't work on the login screen. It's only for the desktop.

It's suppose to also work on the log on screen according to this link below, but I haven't tried it yet personally. I don't see the ultiman.exe file available from there though.

The first link leads me to download the same thing as the previous link. Then the second link is only for the desktop not login.
