How can I change the Windows 7 logon screen to a very different look?

Hello,
I want to change the logon screen in Windows 7 to the Windows 98 style (picture attached)
Are there any sites I can either download a theme like this or a site that I can make one like it on or software to make a custom theme like the windows 98 logon screen?Name:  Image-008.png

Hello emerald,

I am not sure if you can get that actual dialogue box or not, there are tons of programs that claim to change the logon but usually its just changing background pictures and what-not. You can experiment with some of them and see if you can get that specific one. Just be careful downloading them and make sure you google each one to make sure its legit before trying it.

However, I can get you close. You have Windows 7 Professional so thats a plus. Please type "gpedit.msc" in your Search (in Start) and then follow the first set of instructions here:
Change the logon screen - Microsoft Community

Next, if you want to change the background to that color, follow this:
Log On Screen - Change

Just substitute the picture added in the tutorial with a solid background or any image you wish.

Hope this helps!
