    Don't forget if you change the logon.scr file it will be replaced by windows automatically as its a protected system file. If you want to change the logon screensaver from the XP logon that bounces with something else, just edit the registry to point to a new file which is what I do and it works fine.

    I have a GPO which copy's a wallpaper and screensaver file to the workstation and amends the registry for both and its a startup script so I can change them and it just re-copys them and looks rather nice and corporate and works well

    The GPO is a startup script that I have written that is just two xcopys one to copy the wallpaper and the other the screen saver from a shared folder on the network to the local machines C drives, and then it merged the following registry set into it.

    (rename to .reg the attachment and that will work - look inside the file and I have commented a few bits IN BLOCK CAPITALS to help you out )
