Minority of one I don't like 7057 logon screen - can we change it

Hi guys

It looks like I'm in a minority of One here -- but I really don't like the logon screen in build 7057 -- looks pale and insipid compared with previous build (especially on a laptop with one of those Ultra-Brite screens)

It's the same screen you see when you lock the computer -- horrible.

Any way to change this -- sometimes there is a way to add an OEM customisation.

Anybody had a chance to tinker around with this and get a nice background

(If the Guy who used to develop the "Windows XP Black Edition" is on these Forums pleas do your stuff here on Windows 7) -- If you've ever seen his excellent work you'll know exactly what I mean).

Cheers
jimbo

you can change the logon screen here:

1. Download LogonStudio Vista or LogonStudio Xp from stardock and install. (i forgot which one it is i think it is vista)

2. run with compatibility Windows Server 2003 (Service Pack 1).

3. just get the logon screen you want and put it on .

Done

There you go hope it helps.

Hi there --busy downloading the X-64 version of build 7057 -- leaked this morning. Got around another 90 mins before download completes

Off to Lunch in a nice English pub. (That's one area the UK can't be faulted in).

Will try it then

Hi there

tried that but I was hoping for something Earlier in the logon process.

I want to avoid seeing the Hideous screen you get at logon time -- before you enter your password

It's a HIDEOUS insipid pale blue colour with a girlie dove on it -- what on Earth was Microsoft thinking when they thought of this one.

probably some of that "funny smelling" tobacco from an Amsterdam Coffee Shop no doubt.

cheers

I have to agree with jimbo45, I'm actually emabarrassed when ever I look at the new login screens. At least make it gender neutral rather than keeping this 'feminized' screen!

That's not a login screen. It's the new Microsoft "sexuality confidence check" screen. It's part of your Windows Experience Index, kinda ;-)

Log on screen

About the least thing I care about is how the log on screen looks.
Build 7057 is definitely the the most stable and fastest I have seen.
Only one thing reported in the reliability monitor in four days of extensive testing.

Will keep this build until WIN 7 is released.
