Failed at changing Logon screen Picture.

Ok so I went in and changed the back ground pic in Windows/System32/oobe/info/backgrounds folder, changed the name and instead of it changing to the one I put in there it changed it to some pic with flowers on it and a bird. I have made sure it is Jpg format I made sure it is the same size as the first one as well. Any idea what might be going wrong?

Welcome to Seven Forums FoxAnderson. There are restrictions on size and such. I was going to do it manually initially, but found such an easy automated method that it was not worth it for me. Try this small, free program. It only changes the background. It doesn't need to be installed, and doesn't run in the background once the image is changed.

ok looks like I figured out the problem, My file was right size pixel wise but file size was in the megabytes. I reduced it to just under 100 kb and it worked. thank you for reading this anyway.

Edit: Thanks for the welcome. I prefer to know how to do things myself instead of relying on programs to do it for me. I posted this before I saw your reply. Thank you though.
