    From How to change the windows 7 splash screen / lock screen thread at Toms Hardware
    click start type regedit and hit enter
    right click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and select find
    type OEMBackground and hit enter
    (the path should be computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background )
    (if it is not there you need to create it*right click on background and select new DWORD name it OEMBackground set it from 0 to 1)
    double left click on OEMBackground and change the value from 0 to 1
    click start and type %windir%\system32\oobe
    in the oobe folder create a folder named info
    in that folder create a folder named backgrounds

    now rename your picture that you want displayed durning logon/lock screen backgroundDefault.jpg

    everything is case sensitive so if you have to copy and paste the names. the picture needs to be under 244kb.

    trick to get a picture under the 244kb
    right click on the picture and select open with > select paint
    press ctrl+w
    this will bring up a box under horizontal and vertical select the amount you want to reduce the picture in %

    OEM backgrounds and badges are in the download in this thread on this site

    Win 8.x • Win 7 • Vista - 'Multi-OEM' ISO Project

    To get the badge in System Properties I trimmed the registry file down to "Logo"= .......and manually placed badge file

    PS Learnt a lot in the last 3 months, many thanks to contributors
