How to change background and font on welcome screen

I maintain a computer at this Assisted Living facility. It's Os is Windows 7 Home Premium.There are six user accounts on the welcome page. They are hard to read. I would like to change the background and fonts to make it more readable for these elderly users.

Logon Workshop

I used a program called "Logon Workshop" to modify my Logon screen (a MS update earlier this year replaced the dll and I haven't built a new one).

I actually used a VM to create and test the modified dll file, before I transferred it to my physical installation.
