    Merry Christmas!:D
    I'm trying to change the classic windows login screen, and I'd like to change the image above the text boxes, the one that says Windows Xp Profressional Blah Blah. Does anyone know what to do to change this? I found the image in shell32.dll and replaced it with another one but it didnt show when I restarted the computer. =\ any help would be great!

    I am not going to be much help here, other than to say it is possible. A few years back I got it into my head to have calvin and hobbes gracing my screen at log on and log off. For the life of me, however, I can't remember what I did. I do remember vaguely, that these screens used an odd graphics format, not your common jpg format although I could be thinking of something else. Anyway, I would recommened visiting the tweak xp site. Url below:
