Change the windows 7 Logon Background
Hey, i want to change the logon background for windows 7
i have tried this:
press win+r key and Type Regedit at run prompt
2. Locate following registry key
3. Now in right-side pane, change value of OEMBackground to 1.
4. Now place your custom image in %windir%\system32\oobe
5. Create a new folder info and background within newly created info folder
Folder path should look like this %windir%\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds
6. Now place your desired logon wallpaper within this background folder with file name as backgroundDefault.jpg
i can edit the registry, but i can't copy the file to the oobe folder or anywhere there, because they have locked me out from editing the c:/windows folder.
is there anyway to make the registry think the %windir%\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds is say c:/users/USERNAME/Desktop/File.jpg ?

Are you sure you don't have User Account Control (UAC) turned on? This creates all kinds of pesky restrictions such as preventing applications from editing the registry, etc. It may also prevent you from creating folders under %windir%. Try turning that off and see if you have more success.
