This key lets you change the wallpaper that appears prior to anyone logging in to the system.
1. Using Regedit, open the key below.
2. Modify 'Wallpaper' to equal the BMP you want to use as the background (e.g. 'c:\windows\mylogo.bmp').
3. Reboot your PC for the changes to take affect.
Note: In the same key, you should also be aware of, and possibly set: "Pattern"="(None)" "TileWallpaper"="0"

Value Name: Wallpaper
Data Type: REG_SZ
