Windows 7: When I get to the login screen at windows

When I get to the login screen at windows

You know, where you select your user and input your password to get into windows, my resolution seems to be at 1280 x 1024 but after I login it returns back to normal to 1920 x 1200, why does it do this? Not a big issue but kind of annoying. Also the recycle bin seems to move itself to the upper left hand corner as well even though I set it to the lower right hand corner

I am only guessing on the resolution, but two users on your computer could have two different resolutions set. Before a user is signed on the system just goes to a default resolution.

What are the dimensions of your login picture? Are you using the default login pic?
