    Backslashes!? You need backslashes! Where did all the backslashes go?
    It should be:
    %windir%\system32\oobe
    and:
    Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background

    Ok, I haven't read thru every post, so I'll just ask & if its already mentioned,kindly link me to the post.
    I don't "logon" to my pc, it boots up to the desktop so my question is will this help me change the "Welcome" screen or not? I'm interested in seeing the "Wallpaper" section too. TIA :)

    I've done it before manually but after a fresh reinstall It doesn't work anymore.
    I"m logged in as a user with full control, does it have to be the Administrator?
    It"s on a laptop with a second screen, has it something to do with that?
    Please, Iwant another logon screen.

    Yes, I had the similar problem. I had to reformat and reinstall windows. and I have done everything right and still not letting me do it. I have one laptop, no additional screens, nothing new save for I left the "are you sure you want to and needs admin approval" messages on. I really loved my old login screen.
