    I may not have an answer but someone else here may be able to help you if we knew which version of Windows you are using.

    Those instructions seem to be for changing the screen saver. I believe that marylins wants to change the background picture that is used for the actual logon screen.

    I found some information on another web site that requires editing the Windows registry to add a custom background image.

    WARNING: Edit the registry at your own risk. Improper editing could cause Windows to stop running or not boot up.
