Windows 7: Logon Screen Password Box Help

Logon Screen Password Box Help

I'm looking for some help with the logon screen. I've gotten basically everything set how I want it but I can't find the resources for the password box. Hoping someone can help. Take a look at the picture... I'm trying to find the resources to change the white parts of the password box. I've gotten the background and text to change with my theme but I can't find the rest of the parts. Anyone have any idea's?

Hello Fritz

Unfortunately I don't have much experience in this type of work so therefore I ask, can you help me get the login screen like yours?

I have tried pulling out 12223.bmp from the authui.dll and making it all transparent (Corel Paint Shop Pro, pressed the little eye so nothing was visible) but everytime I boot to the logon screen I just get black screen and have to go to recovery with CMD and restore my backup of the old authui.dll.

Hope you have the time to help me, as I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you
