the file you mention, winlogon, doesn't even exist in that location, and i did a search and had no results.

yes, i have 'show hidden files' option set.

i've found and edited the file for the logging off message, but not this one.

please and thank you.

Hello RyuB,

It's the winlogon.exe.mui file instead inside the C:\Windows\System32\en-US folder. Double check, it's there.

nope, it's definitely not there, i have on the list, wininit.exe.mui and the next file down is winload.efi.mui

seriously, i've even used the search and it wasn't found.

i'm thinking possibly i deleted it by mistake when i meant to delete the original wininit.exe.mui when i was editing it to change the logon message.

i'm hoping the place i got my puter from is willing to just email me the file (they're 53 km from here so it's kinda a nuisance to drop in) as they will have it on record that i have genuine windows and not a pirated copy.

If you are browsing in Resource Hacker looking for the file, then use Windows Explorer instead to see if the file is there instead.

If not, then run a sfc /scannow command to see if it may be able to replace it since it's a system file.

Hi Guys - please help. Ive followed all the steps and initially it worked BEFORE I rebooted. Then after reboot sadly my customised logon messaged disappeared. I went thru all the steps again but was suprised to see the winlogon.mui.exe still had the customised messaged in. I have SP1.
So . . . why did it initially work and then stopped working even tho the file shows the message . . . . but most importantly I guess I do I fix it?
Thx to all in advance.

Hello TheKooster, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did you make any changes, install anything, or run anything before this happened?

Nope - I just followed the instructions, then logged of and logged on and it worked. Then without doing anything else I rebooted and logged on and then nothing.
