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This version of the login is outdated.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.

Angelman180 Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2014
Just replace the authui.dll with the new one.
You may need to install InstallTakeOwnership.reg. Just double-click on it.

it's "working" now but it take so much time to start at least on the first run (hope it's just that) i didn't know what i did to make it work for me

still it's outstanding

thank you very much, poiznxx
Hasthur Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013
i cant make it work, in x64 you have to change both authui.dll?

still i did that and it didnt work, still i didnt test using one of my images for bg
UnknownGuy10 Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2013

jeffry159 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013
works fine, but the image and name are not centered so there is blank space on the top, any idea how to fix this? It's quite annoying.. i have only 1366 x 768 res. could that be the problem?
DeviantArt289 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013  Student Interface Designer
Looks Brilliant, thanks. Although I have the same minor problem as OddFacade... The shutdown option is gone. Not major however if there is a way I could get this shutdown option back I would like to know how to do it. Any suggestions? Don't worry if it's too much effort because it doesn't bother me that much. Thanks again, Great work!
Falandysz Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
I cant put my computer on standby anymore :( when I awake it again it doesnt turn on the screen so I have to shut down by pressing the power button. how do I completely undo all this? I even tried completely reseting the problem is still there?
kcnnck Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2012
i finally got it to work...
had to changed my buttonset to zero(0) in the registry
it seems that only the resource UIFILE/12400 was properly configured.
kcnnck Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2012
*had to change*
FastestClassic Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
Can you make an installer for this? I tried installing it using the instructions, but when I moved the new authui.dll to System32, it didn't do anything...
FastestClassic Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2012
Never mind, I got it to work!
AmAnZx Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2012  Student Artist
really nice, like it...
OddFacade Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
This is great, but at my user logon, I'm not getting that Shut Down option. I get it all properly with Ctrl+Alt+Delete, but not at logon. It's just a note though--not a big issue by any means. The animation is smooth (the user icon goes into place before the backdrop does), the design is simplistic, and I like it.
shahmeeernaeem Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012
i works man thanks
HaZaRd666 Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012
So any idea if this works on SP1? I'm really looking forward to trying it but if it doesn't work I'll pass :(
salsatabasco Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012
Confirming that it works on my Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64.
darthnortiuss Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2012  Hobbyist Artist

hazuki-tanaka Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Didn't work. Somehow the file did not copy over into the system folder..... maybe you should double check the steps... I had to do a system restore in order to get my computer to run again normally.
BornForTDM Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012
Is this for 32 or 64 bit operating systems?
