Fantastic! Thank you!
EDIT: can someone upload on other mirrors?
I will upload them on a backup mirror now.
I'd like to add that you can use a personalized LogonScreen even without using an external program :
Open up the registry editor and browse to the following key:
Create a new dword value called "OEMBackground"
Enabling it, the system will look for a file : BackgroundDefault.jpg
(The image filesize cannot be larger than 256 KB [24 bit] )
Into this folder :
The image BackgroundDefault.jpg will be stretched or shrinked for every different resolution you're using, so, if you
want to have a "perfect matching" image, you can put in that folder other images named in this way :
(All of them cannot have a filesize larger than 256 KB [24 bit] )
Only this names are allowed (so, only for this exact resolutions you'll have the image that you added), o else
the system will use anyway the BackgroundDefault.jpg.(so you need to add this one anyway...)
Besides that, if you're going to modify the file imageres.dll for the icons, you can add them directly to it,
so that the only thing you need will be the RegKey "OEMBackground"="1".
You can find them into the Resources folder "IMAGE", values from 5031 till 5043.
good stuff....thank you very much!
For people who like to change their icons without iconpackager or TuneUp or similar app, there are a few dll files that contain most windows icons.
The most important dll files containing icons are :
shell32.dll -> Windows Shell Common Dll (306 icons)
imageres.dll -> Windows Image Resource (218 icons)
wmploc.DLL -> Windows Media Player Resources (208 icons)
netshell.dll -> Network Connections Shell (164 icons)
mmcndmgr.dll -> MMC Node Manager DLL (129 icons)
moricons.dll -> Windows NT Setup Icon Resources Library (113 icons)
ieframe.dll -> Internet Browser (105 icons)
compstui.dll -> Common Property Sheet User Interface DLL (101 icons)
DDORes.dll -> Device Category information and resources (81 icons)
pnidui.dll -> Network System Icon (59 icons)
imageres.dll and shell32.dll contain most of the explorer folder icons (shell32.dll has the folder icons for open/save dialogs).
Added this info to first post under point 7 as well.

I think it will be a good idea to include the dll file to be hack for the Control Panel especially to those who wish to change some of the ugly icons in the Control Panel.....I have been hunting high and low for the dll file that house the icon for that "Fonts" icons but to no avail.... ( The one with the the letter A in the ugly yellow folder)...

Hi, what is the program that you used for the dock at the top in the logon changer screenshot?
It's no program bro. Made it myself by modifying the wallpaper with gimp2, and making the icons...
