    Windows 7 Background

    Hi there

    If poss can we please have a logon wallpaper made, we have a wallpaper all ready for staff and student, don't know why we didn't do a logon background.

    I have modded our latest Windows 7 deployment image so it doesn't have the empty user picture frame (That was annoying)
    The Academies logo will need to be up the top really, same as the name. The is because you already have the Windows Version at the bottom and in the middle you have the status messages ie starting services, applying updates.

    If you don't mind,

    either matching the new logon background with similar colour styles with our current desktop background
    or creating a new logon background and a new desktop background (blue colour)

    My colleague made one, but it's terrible lol.

    Wondering if any one up for creating something better?

    See attached files

    Many thanks in advanced

    I had to delete some code from authui.dll from the system32 and wow64 (64bit os) using Resource Hacker.

    If you want the files, I can email them to you if you want (pending of course you have a Windows 7 Licence, so were legal here) or I can send you a link tomorrow with the guide I used to do it, as I cant remember what code lines you need to delete.

    I would also like to know how you got rid of that annoying frame [if it was achieved by editing authui.dll then I may not look into that solution: Does it break the EULA?]

    @FN-GM a post in a thread describing how to take the
    authui.dll editing route is here:

    I thought the use of ResHack to edit the AuthUI.dll broke the EULA, thereby invalidating your warranty and licence?

    Thats what i thought, but after speaking to someone from MS in Sydney they said it hasn't been since the release of Vista.
