Default how do you change the logon background image?

I have tried TweakUILogonWallpaper, and I have tried using ResHack, and I
have tried using the few registry hacks that are out there, but not one of
them works! Whatever changes I make don't seem to take, and it goes back to
default. I think maybe it's because Windows File Protection is stopping any
changes, though most of the tweaks I've read out there don't seem to mention
WFP at all. And yes I am the administrator of this pc, I have full access.

Any ideas? All I want to do is change the logon background image...seems
simple enough.

Tim

Hello Tim,

If you are trying to change the default wallpaper for the logon screen,
launch the registry editor and navigate to:

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop

Change the data of the 'Wallpaper' string to the fully qualified path of the
desired BMP.

Hi

I've tried that, it didn't make any difference, XP just ignored it. Does the
new BMP have to match the default BMP exactly in height and width? Does it
have to be in brackets, eg [D:\LogonBG.bmp]? And do I have to include the
filetype in the new value?

Even after rebooting or logging off XP just ignores any tweak I make.

Looking through your blog (which seems mainly about Vista anyway)I do not

Hi

I've tried that, it didn't make any difference, XP just ignored it.
Does the
new BMP have to match the default BMP exactly in height and width? Does
it
have to be in brackets, eg [D:\LogonBG.bmp]? And do I have to include
the
filetype in the new value?

Even after rebooting or logging off XP just ignores any tweak I make.

Default Do not hijack this thread. Post a new post with your problems.

If someone decides that it's a good idea to reply to a post from the stone
age, I don't believe it requires anyone else to follow in a cascade of
foolishness and loose sight of common sense...

They will simply be alone with their solitary response - and when -
eventually - the poster realizes why his solitary contribution is so eerily
alone, he will cringe inwardly with the rest of us!

It really does benefit no-one to call him by playground names.

There should be only one unwritten rule in a group that has no method to
enforce any at it's disposal - keep your text to the thread!

Your body of text has little to do with it's subject .

Cheers, Tim Meddick, Peckham, London. :-)
