Change the Windows 7 Login Screen Background Image

Change the Windows 7 Login Screen Background Image
When you login to your Windows 7 computer (assuming you haven’t used something like this tutorial to turn on automatic login), you’ll generally see a login window with a background looking something like this. It’s fine; there’s nothing wrong with it. But sometimes a change is good so in this article we’ll show you how to change the background image behind the login screen to anything you want. The first step is to open up the Start Menu by clicking the orb in the lower left corner of the screen. Now, in the Start Menu search box, type regedit, to open up the Registry Editor. When the Registry Editor appears in the Start Menu, click the Enter key to launch it. Now, right-click on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE folder, and choose the Find option. The search window will appear so perform a search for OEMBackground. Note: it’s possible that OEMBackground doesn’t exist on your system; if this is the case, adding a new DWORD value with the name of OEMBackground will fix things.

The first story is one propagated by Rebecca Kiessling, the poster child for the no exceptions in cases of rape or incest.
