    I tried messing with AuthUI - gave up as it didnt work or put my PC into a reboot loop...

    Also not sure on the legality of it.. IIRC hacking the GINA.dll in XP was considered to be in violation of the MS EULA.. so I suspect the same to be true with AuthUI.dll, otherwise I am sure MS would have allowed it to be changed in a similar fashion to the login Background...

    We had issues with Man profiles too... We got it working perfectly, then we hit a snag, we need multiple profiles! as far as we are aware the profile MUST be called mandatory, which we cant have

    I thought all you had to do was change the NTUSER.DAT to NTUSER.MAN and name the "default" profile folder on the server to "<your_shared_profile_name>.man" and point the users to \\server\share\<your_shared_profile_name>.man which then created a local copy along the lines of jbloggs.man ??

    It's been a while since I used mandatory profiles, but IIRC that is all you need to do..

    We found it only worked when it was called "mandatory" also it must have a .v2 suffix to distinguish between Win 7 clients and XP.

    It might also be worth mentioning a program called Logon Workshop too, as this makes it really easy to customize everything else on the logon screen.

    Handy, but all we want to do is change the picture, this has no option for that. Thanks anyway

    There is an option in the GPO on server 2008 r2 for this... you can set a pic or make them all blank...

    EDIT - Found it: GPO\Computer Config\Administrative Templates\Control Panel\User Accounts\Apply the default user logon picture to all users.

    Hope this helps
