Hi Shaun

Just thought i would mention this has stopped working again on my home premium with sp1 installed after using the sp1 clean-up tool.Im unable to change any of the log on/off or shutting down messages again now.

Also ive used sfc/scannow to reset the files.They have reset in the system32\en-US folder but my custom messages i created still show on login/logoff and shutdown

Regards Danny

LOL, you had to go and mess with it.

I'm not sure what else you can do since it still works for me and I can't reproduce your issue. I'll post back if I come with an idea for you.

hi shawn

i am facing a problem with this one
i have done everything as mentioned in the 1st post but am not able to get the welcome or logoff text to change

one strange thing i found was that even after successfully modifying the dll and replacing it in system32\enus folder the attributes of the file are showing the original date!!!

have a look at the scrshots

help me out to get this great trick to work

Hello Abu,

Even though you have Ultimate, it seems that you may still need to install SP1 (see NOTE box at top of tutorial) if you have not already for it to work.

Interesting... Stopped working for me also.
Seems that SP1 has become a necessity for it.. >_<

Sad. I'll be happy once the final SP1 is released through Windows Updates sometime this Q1 of 2011.
