Have you tried Stardock?
by John.Wilkinson / March 26, 2005 2:22 AM PST

The program LogonStudio from Stardock is small, easy-to-use, and best of all, free. You can download any .logonxp files you want (including their own collection of almost 1800), and edit what they say, as well as their layout.

While you're at it, you may want to try BootSkin, another free program from Stardock. It allows you to switch the standard Windows boot screen to one of over 1500 skins available. Usually, you can find matching BootSkins and Logon Screens.

Hope this helps,
John

Use caution when changing boot/login screens! You can get LOCKED out of your system. I find it best to leave these be.
