 +====== Change logon screen background on Windows 7 ======
 +Want to add branding to a windows machine before any user logs on? No problem, there is a workaround (since it is not supported via any application)
 +  - Open the Windows Start menu and enter regedit into the search bar.
 +  - Right click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and select Find.
 +  - Search for OEMBackground,​ which should be in Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background. If the key does not exist, add a new DWORD value with the name OEMBackground.
 +  - Double click on the entry OEMBackground,​ and change the value from 0 to 1.
 +  - Open Windows Explorer and go to the following path: %windir%\system32\oobe.
 +  - Create a new folder named info, and open it.
 +  - Create a new folder within info named backgrounds.
 +  - Rename your desired wallpaper as backgroundDefault.jpg and place it inside the folder backgrounds (images must be less than 245KB in size).
 +That should do the trick, now just lock your PC, log off or reboot and enjoy.
