I created this a few years ago and kind of forgot about it :? Its a nice little addition to your log-in screen (If you have Windows XP anyway)

Just found a way to get it to work for vista.

1.Go to downloads.cnet.com and type in stardock logon studio.
2.Download the program and run it.
3.Download Avenger 95 file and click it while the logon studio is running.It will show up in the list of logon backgrounds,and hit apply.

Yeah I wasn't happy about flipping the car angle but I felt it looked better pointing towards the log-in than away.

That logon looks awesome! Too bad animated ones can't be used.

I had such a hard time centering and shrinking the image vertically to get it to allow you to type into kitt's scanner.

So is there an easy way to change this. I have XP and know it prob just replaces a file but a step by step for us xp users would be helpful also as wins wiki is lacking.

How do you get rid of the stock windows bottom bar and the windows blue box around the logo?

To the people who made the Knight Rider Festival possible especially Paul Casey. Thank You! See you all and more in 2012 :kitt2:

I found a good clear shot of the F.L.A.G. logo from the 2008 series knight rider and photoshopped it a bit.

Wow this one is the best. Is there any way you can make this background available here, full res, and explain how to make it work on W7 please?

Probably somewhere in 'Account'.

Thanks. Simon

It’s a feature in Windows 7. Windows\System 32\oobe\info\backgrounds\backgroundDefault.jpg will show up on the welcome screen.
You have to create the subfolders if they aren’t already there.

Also, there’s a registry change you might need to make if it hasn’t been enabled:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background
Set OEMBackground (DWORD) to value 1 base hexadecimal.

Thanks, but am hoping to get the main image too. So hopefully that designer of that will PM it to me so I can use your instructions.

Thanks!
