Windows 7 - Metro UI Login by poiZNxx Windows 7 - Metro UI Login by poiZNxx
This version of the login is outdated. Go to [link] for newer version.

This is the metroUI version of the crappy old windows 7 login screen.
How to Install:
1. Make sure no application are running.
2. Install InstallTakeOwnership.reg (double click, click on RUN, then click YES, and OK)
3. Then Browse to Your Local Drive (Normally is C:)
4. Open Windows and System32
5. Look for authui.dll.
6. Right Click, and choose Take Ownership.
7. Then Rename the file, like authui.dll to authui.dll.old
8. Choose your preferred colour and the correct dll and copy it to your system32 folder and close it.
a. Open and Run as administrator TweaksLogon.exe
b. Choose any wallpaper in Wallpaper folder as your login screen.

Best used with screen aspect ratio of 16:9 and works only with English version of windows 7.
This is a mod of [link] by :iconmvgraphics:

You may try but take a backup before you do so.
