Windows 7: Logon Screen Changes - Can it affect loadtimes/stability?

Logon Screen Changes - Can it affect loadtimes/stability?

Hello! I have a quick question that may be a controversial topic, not entirely sure.

If you change your logon screen background with or without a program can it affect system stability/boot/load times? I understand the 256kb limit Microsoft implements into the logon screen background ensures proper boot times, but does any program out there actually compress a photo into that limit when switching your logon screen background?

With this program you do not notice any issues at all?

I'm using it currently and it seems to be doing the job, thanks a lot for the help! I self-benchmarked my boot/load times with it on default and changed and didn't notice any differences.
