Hello AaroNo,

Nice image. :)

If you have recently already given me rep points, then you have to wait a few days before you are able to give to the same member a gain.

Thank you though. :)

Hi Brink
I have a problem with the Logon generator,
My logon picture is a few months old, and it doesn't show on the program, I still have the picture I created it from but not the .logonvista file.

I've re-downloaded the generator to make sure its not at fault.

No matter what picture I attempt to apply it does nothing, I just cannot remove the present logon picture.

Is there possibly a registry solution to this problem.?:confused:

Hello wysiwyg,

Running a sfc /scannow command should restore the log on screen back to default. As a test, use Run as administrator on LogonStudio Vista to see if that will allow it run properly for you.

Hope this helps. :)

Doesn't do anything as all it sees is a perfectly good Logon screen, it looks like it will have to be forced to changed,
Would it have to be Registry or maybe through System 32/en-us
And using Logo generator as Admin doesn't work.

You are putting a space where there shouldn't be one.

It's sfc /scannow NOT sfc/ scannow

The above screen is basically saying that it recognises the transaction but not the command and is giving you the various choices.

Thanks Ex-Brit, ran it as you said, after reboot all that happened was it put my boot screen back to Default, but there was no change to the Logon screen, I was hoping it would put it back to Default.

ScreenHunter_01 Jul. 06 11.36.gif

What would happen if I deleted logon scr.mui file.:?

Would that allow me to apply a new logon screen through the logon generator.

To be honest I'm not sure. But to be on the safe side set a Restore Point for now, and then try it. You can then always go back.

Usually when one deletes such a file Windows rebuilds it anyway, but I could be wrong.

Well it most likely rebuilds it. Did you try using Stardock's Logon Studio Vista again?

wysiwyg,

Have you already tried doing a System Restore using a restore point dated when you had the default log on screen to see if that restored it?

I doubt it would go that far back.

I may have to re-install windows to get rid.:(

Earliest it would go back was 16th June. I had the screen longer.

Did some more checking, and thought I'd look at Tune-up Utilities, found it was out of trial, so decided to Uninstall, and guess what, the new Logon screen flashed up on restart.

So it seems depending on what alterations you make in tune-up, can affect your logon screens.

Needless to say I had no trouble on Win7 as it (TUP) wasn't installed.

We live and learn.

Over the years I've learned to avoid anything that remotely resembles a tune-up utility or a registry cleaner as they always end up breaking something in exchange for whatever dubious benefit you may gain elsewhere.
