Windows 7: W7 Screensaver PRIOR to logon screen

W7 Screensaver PRIOR to logon screen

I tried the process but the "logon" screensaver does not come on PRIOR to the logon screen so on a reboot it goes direct to the logon screen showing our two accounts, "Admin" and "Student". I've seen some other posts, particularly on Winhelponline but those are so convoluted.

What I need for our literacy center is a screensaver when a computer is turned on but no one logs on. We would prefer something like the 3D rotating one in W7 so that we could display our name until someone taps a key and goes to the two account logon screen.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Video Screensaver for Logon Screensaver
Hi, I have a couple of Windows 7 Pro (x86) machines that are used as kiosks in public locations. I'd like to have the computers display a video on the screen, presumably as a screensaver, while no one is logged in to Windows. Usage sessions with the kiosks are short. Folks usually just want to...
No Screensaver on Logon Screen
My wife and I each have user accounts and we "Switch User" back and forth all the time, and sometimes leave it at the logon screen with our two icons to click on. In XP, the screensaver would run on the logon screen, but I'm noticing that nothing happens from the logon in 7. We have use the...
