Hey, all.

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately. Things have been a tad hectic. Anyways, while I mull over which Linux distro to use, I'm going back to hacking Windows system files. So far, I have:

  • Removed ease of access, shut down options, and Windows branding from alt-ctrl-delete menu and login menu
  • Removed user picture from login menu and changed the arrow orb to grey
  • Changed wallpaper of login and alt-ctrl-delete menus
  • A few minor hacks here and there
These have all been done in Windows 7 Ultimate. If anyone would like me to post a tutorial of any of these, feel free to let me know in the comments, and I will be happy to do so. If you can think of any other ugly UI issues in Windows 7 that you'd like to see resolved, let me know and I'll start working on a hack (and tutorial) for you right away!

And remember: Whenever you hack essential system files, ALWAYS MAKE A BACK UP OF THE ORIGINAL.


  1. I am sure people would like tutorials on how to do some of that. :P

  2. Haha yeah, always interesting to mess around with Windows

  3. Really neat... I'll be checking back soon! alphabetalife.blogspot.com

  4. tutorial on changing the login prompt screen wallpaper and ctrl alt del wallpaper would be great. also, if you know how to change the logo displayed during start up that would be great too.
