Windows 7 | Login Screen Reworked by alexandru-r-ghinea Windows 7 | Login Screen Reworked by alexandru-r-ghinea
:new: SP1 Released as of 30.05.2012
:bulletorange: "No logo" is discontinued
:bulletorange: Since few people will be upgrading to Windows 8, I will refresh the code and remake every graphic element to make this the best login screen (again).

--
:bulletorange:Over downloads: 30 000
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aurora Logon made possible with resources from Longhorn Build 4074 and Longhorn Reloaded Project.
WORKS also on SP1
:bulletpink: For this to work, you have to restore your original Windows 7 Logon and remove any Logon Changer, Logon Backgroung Changer, etc.

DirectUI Tweaks were made.
Dreamweaver was used for XML DirectUI syntax.

Wallpaper from Aurora Reloaded Pack by Uribaani

:new: (1 Aug. 2010)
authui.dll bug fixed. Hope you like this release!
x64 link back online, after long struggles (Thanks go to Rebdominator and Kimba for their support)

:new: (3 Aug. 2010)
Security Update:
:bulletorange:Fixed the possibility for someone to change your password permanently from the UI of this Logon, when you pressed "Ctrl+Alt+Del".
:bulletorange:Disabled the ability for someone to create a bootable flashdrive and access your computer from the UI of this Logon, also when you pressed "Ctrl+Alt+Del".
:bulletyellow:Also changed the arrows, scrollbars and cleaned the code a little bit.
Thank you for your support!

Aurora Background:
x64:[link]
x86:[link]

:bulletyellow:Easy Background Changer that works with this type of Logon
Mediafire Download Link (works both on x64 and x86):[link]
(I know that in the preview it still looks like the default 7 Logon, but it really does change your background, just hit "Test" button!)

:bulletorange: N00b Guide:

:bulletyellow: For Windows 7 X64, 64bits:
in "System32" you have the x64 files ---> main x64 system files
in "SysWOW64" you have the x86 files ---> dependencies for the 32bit processes running on your Windows x64.

So you should download the x64 link, and replace the files manually in the "System32" folder. If you are runnig the x64 version of Windows 7.

:bulletyellow: For Windows 7 X86, 32bits:

If you run the x86-32bit, download from the x86 link and replace in "System32" also.

That is IT!

Don't forget to take ownership(Search with Google for that, it's a *.reg file) and replace manually (also, make a darn backup, before replacing!)

Any chance this could work on a Win 7 Ultimate SP1 x64 or Win 7 Pro SP1 x64 machine? I'm trying to get the "Logon to: domain name" portion of the welcome screen removed.

I'm looking for something similar, yet probably simpler. I want to edit the small "box" image around my user picture on logon screen in Windows 7. I want to change it to grayscale, along with the -> (right arrow) button next to the password field.
Do you know of any way to do this, maybe a location of the image file?

I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (x86) and Carefully followed the instruction, even removed all stuff for changing logon and placed the original authui.dll before the whole process but can't make it work.
To author : Please do some update on this logon because it's not working.
To the downloader : If you don't want to mess up your system then Don't forget to make a system restore point first. Otherwise you are probably going to lose your current OS.

Awesome Works Windows 7 x64 bit.

Here's a little less vague tutorial on how to install it.
1. Extract the downloaded zip file.
2. Extract the Default_30.05.2012.zip
3. Go to: Default_30.05.2012/Embedded_30.05.2012/x64/x64
4. Copy the authui.dll and past it in C:/Windows/System32
5. Just look up how to change the background
6. Switch user or log off to see the epic new login screen.

If you have 32 bit then my guess is that you pretty much have to do the same thing but with the stuff in the x86 folder instead.

Screwed my Windows at work — black screen instead of logon screen, even in “safe mode”. I guess that's because I used to customize logon background before. Had to boot Ubuntu from USB pendrive and replace Windows' authui.dll with a backed up one.

Please make a BIG BIG DISCLAIMER for those who use customized logon screens.

I'll try this later on my home PC with a non-customized logon.

Yes, same identical thing happened to me. It took days to fix, and thank God I made a backup of the original file or I'd be SOL. This file should be removed before it screws anyone else's computer up.
