Change box initial login box (Windows 7)
I would like to put the school logo where stated on the attachment does anyone know how to go about this either GPO or Registry wise?

To do this you need to put a bmp file into "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures" (x86) called user.bmp
Then go to Computer Settings->Admin Templates->Control Panel->User Accounts->Apply the default user logon picture to all users
The BMP is 128x128
You can deploy it as a package/startup script/os image/gppreferences (my way)

Just tried that, but the picture only appears once a user is logged on - if nobody is logged on, the box remains empty.
My approach has been to deploy a customised logon backdrop instead that has the school logo in the top left.

Problem is you still can't get rid of that ridiculous box unless you hack the relevant DLL I believe. We have a customised background, but still have that frame!

Try adding the same image as guest.bmp. I think that should then show the picture you want

I had the default guest.bmp in place when I enabled that policy to test it, and it didn't show that image either.
