Windows 7: How can I change the Windows logon screen to Windows Aero?

How can I change the Windows logon screen to Windows Aero?

I was forced to reinstall Windows 7 recently. All my settings were lost. One setting I want to restore is the Windows Aero logon screen to replace the default background. Can I do this using Windows 7 Home edition? Previously I had Windows Professional edition. I may have customized the logon screen that way. My registry editor key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background is set to 1, but can't find the Aero background graphic to insert in c:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds. I don't know how to activate the Aero theme. Please help.
