    First, does anyone know where the picture of the creepy login guy is s I can change it?
    I like the metro style but he ruins it.

    Second when unlocking the secret admin account and trying to login on it there(at least in mine)
    there was a default password. Has anyone figured out what it was? I don't need it, used cmd to
    change it but was just wondering if someone got it or is it not on every install, with the few
    different ones we have out there?

    the image is inside %WINDIR%\system32\AuthExt.dll (use restorator to replace it).

    Start -> cmd (run as adminisrator)
    Net user Administrator /active:yes
    Net user Administrator secret

    You can now login with
    login = Administrator
    pass = secret

    Edit: oh you already changed it. I havnt a clue what the password is.

    spion, thanks, I know that trick XD I was more interested to know it if was on every build or maybe someone had changed it beforehand.
    If not I wonder why Microsoft would all the sudden decide to add a password, it wasn't in my 7850 build.

    Thanks you...

    question is where I could change background in lockscreen and logon (u know fish stuff background after u pressed alt+ctrl+del)?

    another question, suppose I change every images based on resolution? or just change just one match of my monitor resolution?

    it doesn't seem to matter what resolution i set, it'll always use the first image (IMAGE/1001) for me..
    as for the fish bg, i think it's inside authui.dll
