Windows 7

AKA: Windows 6.1


I've done a few things to make my Windows 7 install seems a bit more contemporary.

Lock Screen

To change the BG image, first make a .REG file with this text.



Run it, then add the image you want to use to C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds. It must be in the format Background[width]x[height].jpg.

Text Shadow

Disable text shdow on the log-in screen


Use UTC Time

Had to do this to stop it messing with the clock in my Arch install when I was dual booting.
