Windows 7: Log on screen sound/music?

Log on screen sound/music?

Hi. I've recently changed my log on screen background, and I decided I wanted to change the log on screen sound.

Here's what I'm trying to do:
Have a 3 minute audio file (.wav) play when I'm on the log on screen, and whenever I actually log in and get to my desktop, the music has to stop playing.

How do I pull that off? I've looked up so many tutorials, but it's always on how to change the desktop startup sound.

Hello Drayken, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to change the Windows Logon sound event for that.

Sounds - Change

Hope this helps,

Do you have any idea which one it is that plays when you're on the logon screen?

It's called Windows Logon. You'll see it listed in Sounds.
