Copy and paste this to the Windows Explorer addressbar:
Code:
%WINDIR%\System32\oobe
This should show you the contents of Oobe folder. It should be there, it is a system folder creted when you install Windows 7. It's not hidden.

Reason i am asking is that I followed this guide to change the logon background screen.

There's a much easier way to do it. I've changed mine using option 1 of this tutorial. BTW, as it happens I just posted earlier today a screenshot of my logon screen on another thread.
