Windows 7 Logon Background Changer : Customize your welcome screen wallpaper
Windows 7 Logon Background Changer is a free open source software that let you change the wallpaper of the Windows 7 logon screen (also known as "welcome screen", "login screen" or LogonUI).
It works with Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate, Enterprise and Starter, in x86 or x64 (32 or 64 bits). It also works on Windows Server 2008 R2 (but you are not supposed to customize a server).
On a side note, this small program is WPF based, it's a nice technical demo of Windows Presentation Foundation capabilities for those interested in WPF. It requires a decent GPU for the 3D animations to run smoothly.

On some computers, the following error message may appear :
"Unable to write to folder c:\windows\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds\".
Solution : Open the "c:\windows\system32\oobe\info\" folder in Windows Explorer, then rename the "backgrounds" folder as "backgrounds2".

|Thank you so much! Worked smoothly... but: For novices, seeing a 'zip file,' is enough to contemplate dialing 911 or emigrating in a hurry. Also, when 'choosing a folder' to locate the pic I wanted to use, I was unable to, as that folder contains hundreds of pics and one is unable to scroll through them. Just thought you might want to enable such a feature... Once again, thank you for your wonderful program.|

|I downloaded this directly from your website, scanned for viruses, and got a negative detection. Then I ran the program which downloaded an installer that tried to install several spamware programs like registry optimizer, and search dialer and a bunch of crap. NO THANKS|

|I'm sorry to read about your terrible experience, but I can assure you that there is no adware/crapware bundled with my apps.|
the actual download link for Win7 Logon Background Changer is:
but I think you have clicked on one of those fake "DOWNLOAD NOW" buttons the appears in advertisements served by Google Adsense on my site, and you ended up downloading something not related to my app. Unfortunately I have no control over these misleading ads. I tried to ban them in my Google Adsense settings, but they keep coming back under new domain names.
