By opening %windir%\system32\wmploc.dll in Restorator. In the left hand pane of Restorator 2007, expand the folder 257 and scroll down and find the bunch of files named LIBRARY_BACKGROUND….PNG.

Assign a new image to LIBRARY_BACKGROUND7.PNG

Hope this helps!

Oh, make sure that the hex value under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MediaPlayer\Preferences, is 6
