    En windows 10 RTM TH1 10240 x64 dio demaciados problemas y fue imposible ejecutar la herramienta sin que se estrellara y despues de varios intentos logre ejecutar la herramienta pero sin exito alguno y provocando la falla del sistema por suerte tenia una copia de restauracion pero despues de todo el fracaso no estaba dispuesto a rendirme, asi que descubri la solucion …. Copiar la herramienta Windows 10 Login Background Changer en la ruta C:WindowsSystemResourcesWindows.UI.Logon y ejecutar como administrador, primero debe tomar posesion y control total de las carpetas y contenedores para que le permita hacer cambios dentro del mismo, funciona 100% ( lo siento no hablo ingles )

              1 year ago I decided to abandon my office work and it was a best decision i made in my life… I started doing work from home, for this company I found on-line, several hours /a day, and I earn much more than i did on my last work… My pay-check for last month was for 9000 bucks… Great thing about it is that now i have more time with my family… KORTA.NU/MDe

  • Arya Twirl

    I always get error when opening this app and there is a message telling me that access to Windows.logon.ui.pri is denied… So, what do I need to do to regain access? (I’m on build 10240)

    • Sicarius123

      You need to take ownership of the folder, and then give administrator full access. Now run this program by right click and run as administrator. DO NOT just give admin full access to the file, as this app will just delete it if it has no folder access without creating a replacement, and you wont be able to log back into windows at all.

      • Arekku

        Any ideas how to fix this?

        I followed what you said but it still errored a d now i cant login.

        Safe mode doesn’t even work.

        • Sicarius123

          In windows recovery you need to open a command prompt and copy an uncorrupted file over the top of the corrupted file. You can get it from any other machine running windows 10.

          • Arekku

            Yea, tuats what im thinking, unfortunately i dont havea anotuer pc with 10 on it.

      • Raul Queiroz

        I did exactly that, now i cant login, what to do?

        • Raul Queiroz

          PS: aint got other windows 10 PC

          • Raul Queiroz

            How can i open the cmd? If i could then i would Just sfc /scannow

        • Sicarius123

          What you did was take ownership of the file, and not the folder. I did the same thing first time around and the app deletes the original file, but can’t back it up, and can’t replace it. The only way to fix it is to go into the recovery prompt, possibly from a USB boot drive of win10, and open command. You then need the uncorrupt file on a USB, and to copy it into the correct folder to log back in. Alternatively you could just try running a repair install from a win10 boot USB, not sure if that will fix it though.

          • Raul Queiroz

            Can u upload the file for me? Can’t find it anywhere

            • Sicarius123

              Sorry I’ve tried linking you a couple of times and the post never gets through. There is a big thread on this tool on Reddit in the Windows 10 forums, and if you look through you’ll find a link to a dropbox with the files.

      • Raul Queiroz

        By exactly that i mean the wrong thing

  • Brandon Notafake

    Can you fix the download link please? It says the file is no longer available. I’d love to change it from this god awful blue thing Microsoft decided to ship with Windows 10.

    • Hey, thank you for pointing that out. The link has been updated and the app is now available on GitHub.

      • Brandon Notafake

        Hey even after running VS as admin I get the error,

        “An unhandled exception of type ‘System.UnauthorizedAccessException’ occurred in mscorlib.dll

        Additional information: Access to the path ‘C:WINDOWSSystemResourcesWindows.UI.LogonWindows.UI.Logon.pri.bak’ is denied.”

  • Darrin Tyler

    no download?……I dont see anything. I downloaded the zip and there is no exe file in it…….

  • Darrin Tyler

    Finally got it, but it does NOT work. The exe dissapears when I click it……so it doesnt exist.

    • Reed Calhoun

      How’d you get the exe to appear?

  • sotoro10

    Run ‘it’ as administrator.. I have like 20 files here and none of them are a straightforward .exe

  • Leon

    How do you even run that program?

  • clarinetJWD

    Warning! I got it working (yay) but it doesn’t actually work! I now have NO login screen, and no way of accessing my computer.

    • funnycupcakes

      Exactly what happened to me! I had to reinstall windows 7 for it to be upgraded to 10 again. DO NOT USE. I just got windows 10 (yay!) loved it and now I am back to square one (No…). Use at your own risk!

      • clarinetJWD

        If you have another computer available, you can make a bootable flash drive with the Win 10 installer, and do a system restore to get back to working.

  • Tom Robinson

    how can i change that on win 8.1?

  • li von

    WARNING! Background changer causes UNABILITY TO CHANGE
    THE LOCKSCREEN when bc already made some system changes!!!!! In order to change
    lock screen launch win10 background changer and press “restore to defaults” button.
    After than you can set your favorite login background again.

  • Andrew Wilson

    THIS CRASHED MY SYSTEM!!! Do not install

    • Andrew, sorry you had trouble with the app. A recent update to the app has resulted in about 50% of users experiencing problems. The post has been updated two solutions to this problem; one that worked for me and allowed me to change my login screen, and one given by the developer himself.

  • Andrew Wilson

    Someone needs to kill this fucking chick who wrote this article. Irresponsible “reporting”

    I hope a suicide bomber blows her shit up.

  • Oleg

    Holy shit! why you did not delete this article? This app kills login for my windows 10 too, after 6 days YOU NOTICED about the problem!

    Come on! My PC broke! Windows 10 broke! Thanks to the nice man that created the video I managed to fix my logon problem! But HEY! You got to put the word “BEWARE!” to the title of this article!

  • Marvin Kakà

    WARNING: DO NOT USE!! I CAN’T LOGIN ANYMORE AND NOW RUNNING SYSTEM RESTORE!!! IT DOESN’T WORK AND IT WILL ONLY LOCK YOUR COMPUTER!

    well, trying to remove that ugly logon background I’ve spent one hour of my time recovering issue with login and a few of my brain cells because it was a beginning of a work day 🙂 Greetings to PFCKrutonium.

  • Pany Ghaderi

    I followed the guide on how to fix the blinking problem; when I start my computer now the screen is just black… HELP.

    • Lauren

      Hi I have the same problem- I fixed the blinking thing using the video tutorial and now I log in but it just stays stuck on a black screen! The only thing that I can access is task manager. Have you solved the problem yet?

  • Abdur Javaid

    The system canot find the path specified!! help!!

  • Jason Kim

    well great job. I can’t log in to my computer anymore

  • Jerry

    sorry, I made a mistake that I typed ” del Windows.UI.logon.pri.bal Windows.UI.logon.pri “, and when I change to the command “copy”, it is said that the system cannot find the file speficied. T.T …… What should I do now?

  • Manish

    Please update the post.. The developer has released a new version of the application which is perfectly stable and working good. No more screen flicking issue on changing the background of login screen. Tested by me..

    • I’ll update it as soon as I can run the test myself. Thanks!

  • macGen

    Excellent. Well done. Update fixed the issue with flickering logon screen Windows 10 + recent Win 10 Cumulative updates. thank you

    • cYRUS

      just tried it today with the latest version and ran into the same problem, I can no longer access windows

  • Adrian Jackson

    Everything works on the troubleshoot up until the diskpart section. I see 4 sets of disks, and only 2 have letters, C and D. C says “Acer” with 448gb. D says “Push Button” with 16gb. The other 2 with no letters say “Recovery” with 600mb and “ESP” with 300mb.

    How can I tell which one is my windows disk? I’ll be very thankful if you can help.

    • The best way to tell which is your Windows drive is to check the size of the drive it’s installed on. You might not be able to get into it since you have this error so try to restart Windows 10 in safe mode (hit F8, Troubleshoot > Advanced Options) and then note down the drive size.

  • Mario Tunic

    How can i do this on tge surface pro 3?
    i think it doesn’t a boot menu.

  • Joewy Lombe

    Please don’t publish apps that haven’t been properly tested !!! It is completely unprofessional .. I was livid earlier today when I tried the app! I had to format my laptop to get around it, because I had no restore points (that’s if they even work in windows 10), and lets be honest.. the “automatic repair” doesn’t do much… So for now I completely don’t recommend this app to anyone

  • Jonathan

    Thank you!

  • gecko

    “Access to path denied.” What’s going on?

  • Eduardo Martinez

    The solution of command prompt didn’t work for me. The program did not make a .pri.bak file so i wasn’t able to make the copy, I just deleted the .pri and never reached the image before the login page anymore. Had to re-install windows. Thank you!!!

  • Luuuuu

    Change the login background for a flat color without using any third party software or downloading anything at all.
    Open the Registry Editor (Win key +R then type regedit).
    Go to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwarePoliciesMicrosoftWindowsSystem” and create a DWORD value named “DisableLogonBackgroundImage”. Set the value to “00000001”. Delete the value or set it to “00000000” to go back to the default Windows 10 image.
    After you perform the registry hack, the Windows login screen will show a flat-color background. The color will be the same color that you have selected for the task bar and the menus. It will be the accented color. Just press Windows Key + L to lock your PC and check your new color. You don’t have to reboot your pc.
    Enjoy!!
    PS: Changing the background for an image instead of a color is not that easy and you will need a third-party software I’m afraid.

  • Azrael Marc

    yeah easy….. but… force restart three times while booting? isn’t a little dangerous!?

  • Aghniya

    I have restarted my computer but the automatic repair didn’t showed up, how can i access the troubleshoot? Please somebody help me 🙁
