    If (like me) the OEMBackground entry isn't there you will need to create it yourself.

    1. Click Start, type Regedit.exe and press ENTER:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Authentication \ LogonUI \ Background

    2. Create a new DWORD vayour lue named OEMBackground

    3. Double-click OEMBackground and set 1 as its value data.

    4. Exit the Registry Editor.

    5. Download the image submitted here and place it into "C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds"

    If "info\backgrounds" doesn't exist just make the folders manually.

    You can actually use a 3rd party application that would do the change without editing registry entries or navigating to Windows folders. You can search for Windows Logon background changer. You can even add an entire folder of pictures.
