Windows 7: Finding Login screen continue-booting-to-desktop-in-background utility

Finding Login screen continue-booting-to-desktop-in-background utility

Hi, all... so I got a new laptop and can't figure out one of the tweaks I installed on my old laptop... to copy it to the new one.

What it is: Windows 7 would start up to the Login screen, but would continue booting to the desktop (in the background), essentially turning the Login screen into a Lockscreen.

Since there seems to be no icon for it (or I can't find it at the moment)... I don't remember what it's called or where it's loaded, how to find/download it again, etc. I've tried googling a couple times...

It was just nice to start the computer, walk away... then come back and log in...right to a fully loaded desktop...without waiting for everything to load up.

Anyone know which 'utility' does this?? Or... how to isolate what software is running (on old laptop) that allows this to happen?

Thanks in advance.

Changing The Login Screen Background.
Hey guys I was wondering will changing the login background screen do any damage? As I read a thread about a guy who did it and his PC crapped itself. So is it okay to change it? Same applies with the boot thingy. The 4 coloured dots coming together.
