Windows 7 - Metro UI Revamped

This is a replacement to the original windows 7 login screen.

NEW: Lots of bug fixes and new resources.

1. Install it at your own risk. I am not responsible for any damage caused by crashing of the PC.
2. This should work with Windows 7 SP1 for both 32bit and 64bit systems.
3. This Login Screen is only compatible with English version of Windows 7. Other language MAY crash the system.
4. Make sure that your user account has administrative privilege so that you may be able to replace the system files.
5. Check if your operating system is 32bit or 64bit. For that matter, refer goo.gl/KNlqri

1. Save all your work in case your computer crashes.
2. Install "InstallTakeOwnership.reg".
3. Open Explorer and in addressbar type %windir%\system32 and press ENTER.
5. Look for "authui.dll", right click on it and choose Take Ownership.
7. Make a backup of the file by renaming it to "authui.dll.bak".
8. Choose your preferred authui.dll file and copy it to your system32 folder.
9. Test the login screen by pressing "Ctrl + Alt + Del" or "Win + L" or by simply logging off.

1. This is the final version of this Login UI and I do not intend to fix any more bugs.
2. Recovery instructions included in ReadME.txt
3. Background used in preview - Dark Metro Wallpaper Pack
4. You may include this work to any of your projects after due credit mentioned.

Heres the link to the old one without the bugfixes. I might make a new pack with more anime characters later.

I installed this, and it worked! But after I tried to replace the background, the new password box disappeared, along with the boxes that house the CTRL+ALT+DELETE options. Help!

Copy first then rename because if you rename first you don't get administrator permission  and can't change anything.

Just had a question, how would I edit the file to change the width of the boarder window of the login screen? I liked the look of your previous version which has the wider boarders.

Cheers :)

Didn't get it to work the first time doing it automatically; but I was able to restore my system (thank god I set that up) and I tried manually.
Works manually with no problems other than the wallpaper not going up but I found a tool to get that up and it's all working fine.

Just a glitch I saw. When you're connected to a network domain and you win-L to lock, the text that says to press control-alt-delete is covered by the white box instead of being on top of it.
