Windows 7: Big Problem! Changed Logon screen, can't get into account anymore.

Big Problem! Changed Logon screen, can't get into account anymore.

Hey there,
so i have a really big problem. I installed a logon theme i found on the internet. I had to change/replace these two files => authui.dll &
basebrd.dll. After following all steps the correct way, i logged out of my user account to see how the new logon screen looked. Now i only got a blackscreen. When I restart my computer (even in safty mode) my computer loads windows and does only show me a blackscreen instead of the logon screeen, means i can not log in and repair the problem in the file system because i cant get to my desktop and i dont see anything.

Is there anyway I can solve this problem without reseting my coumputer with a recovery cd? Its only because my pc cant show the logon screen correctly. There are two user accounts at the computer one with and one without password.

thabk you and i really really hope you can help me, jakob.

If you like, you could also boot from a retail installation disk to do a system restore at boot.
