    How to change the password prompt/startup screen

    Ok, is it possible to change the Windows Vista password prompt/startup screen? I know that you can choose the picture in the center of the screen which represents the users account. However, I would like to know if it is possible to change that terrible Windows Vista background. Thanks, I appreciate your time and answers.

    Link for downloading Vista Visual Master appears to be dead. It has timed out for me 6 times.
    Can someone confirm that this is the case

    Thank you Mansrm81. Link has been updated in the tutorial. I just love it when they do not set a redirect for a link.
