    XP Logon Box

    Hi,

    How do you change the image on the Ctrl-Alt-Delete logon box for windows XP, Just in the process of rebuilding few machines and want to add the schools logo in there instead of the Microsoft one.

    cheers

    Basically you can use software that will do it for you, Or you can download Resourse Hacker and edit, msgina.dll (Found in c:\WINDOWS\system32\), Then copy a new msgina.dll called a different name (i just do msgina2.dll), Then put a new registry in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] , "Ginadll"="msgina2.dll"
