Hey all I think everybody knows how to change the logon screen background according to Brinks tutorial:

Log On Screen - Change

Well, this tutorial will help show you how to change or remove the log on screen text branding in Windows 7.
Note   Note
You can remove after install, but I don't know if you can edit/replace it after installation. I did managed to replace it before installation modifying the install.wim file.

EXAMPLE: Log On Screen

Here's How:
1. In Windows Explorer, go to C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd and take ownership of the basebrd.dll file.


2. If you do not already have reshacker or restorator installed, then download and install one of them or a program like them.
3. In Windows Explorer, go to C:\Windows\Branding\Basebrd and open the basebrd.dll file with reshacker, restorator, or etc.
4. Navigate to the bitmap folder and delete it.
NOTE: You can also edit or replace this BMP file as well to change the log on screen text branding.

So that's how it's done! I see no reason to remove the logo and version but I'm willing to admit when I'm wrong. I posted link to this on that other thread.

I tried it also, and it need "restorator", it doesn't seem to want to work with "reshacker".

I got the trial version of restorator - Download Trial Version - Restorator - Bome Software ran it, did the change, saved it, and good to go. (Once you have made the change, you can remove restorator trial)

Don't forget to take ownership of the ".dll" before you try to make the changes.

Take Ownership Shortcut

Take Ownership Shortcut. You need to take ownership of the files, its something new with 7. the Address at the beginning takes you to a way to make a shortcut to take ownership when you right click a file
