    Without doing a registry hack is there a way to change the LogOn screen to something a little more me?
    Thanks John

    Yes, there is. This link explains it quite well.

    There is also another much simpler way that I've used, but it'll take me a bit to find and post it back to you. It didn't require anything other than selecting a picture and renaming it in the right folder.

    Thanks Joe and bb. I had seen the link that bb had but not the one Joe gave.
    Thanks John

    Here's a free utility that does it all. I've tried it, and it will even pull a jpeg across the home network and put it in place as a logon background.

    This is another one. It looks like both do the same thing and neither allow the login icon/picture to be customized in style or placement. I'm going to check out Object Desktop and see if they have anything more sophisticated. They have one for XP that's a bit clunky but allows for quite a bit more customization.

    Click on the Customizing Log On Screen on the right side of the page. I have been using this for quite some time with great success.
