Windows 7: Windows 7 logon screen, customize user highlighting

Windows 7 logon screen, customize user highlighting


I'm looking for a possibility to change the highlighting of the users icons at the logon screen of windows 7. It's not easy to see, which user is highlighted. At the Vista logon-screen this was much easyer to perceive. The only information I can find, is how to change the background of the logon screen.
