Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64

Hello to all!
Very interesting thread, but I should be interested in one step more, not found here but related to this argument:

How I can edit the CTRL+ALT+DEL screen?

I need to add some words more on that screen and up to know I found many tricks let me just to get a custom message but after that screen.

To let you to understand better what I'm looking for, you'll found attached to this post an image edited with PS (as an example, the message I would write is more serious)

Finally, I need to know which windows file is related to that screen, so I can modify it with Reshacker app.

Tks in advance!

Is there any way of stopping sfc scans from repairing/replacing the file?

Hello nevesswodniw,

You could use the sfc /verify command to only check and verify if you have any corrupted or modified system files without repairing them.

If you use sfc /scannow, then I'm afraid not since that is the whole purpose of a sfc scan to try and fix/replace corrupted/modified system files with a clean default copy.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

For me, I used Restorator 2009.

I also had to enable Administrator account and log into it (when instructed to "run as administrator" this is what is being required)

Hope this helps others.

Brink thanks for the great tutorials!

If you have trouble Saving as I did with restorator instead of going to the file with explorer, run restorator as admin and get to the file from there then edit it and save

-first time post hope this helps
