Isn't it the "Windows Logon" that you see if you scroll down a little?

copernicus: yes you click on it and select browse select the file you want to be played instead (ONLY WAV. FILES) and it should work smooth.

It's probably built into some dll according to this on vista:

Yes it's in the shell32.dll in system32, you will need to use a resource hacker to open it and then you can replace it with your own, you may need to take ownership of it and give yourself full permissions to be able to save it.
