Hi, I downloaded this piece of software (XP LogMod 2) that was supposed to allow me to change my windows xp log on screen, but there's a slight problem. I didn't have my own logonui.exe. so to try it out I searched in windows for one, chose one at random and pressed ok. Then I pressed the "windows" key + L to see if it had worked, and my desktop background came up, but nothing else happened so I restarted.
After restarting, the windows xp home loading icon went through as normal, and the mouse pointer appeared on a black screen (as usual), but then nothing. The log on screen won't appear, and whatever I do or press it won't change, and so I have to keep restarting manually. To try and combat this, I fresh installed windows xp on a partition i have, but I have no idea what files to change to get the other installation working from within the new installation. I've tried replacing the logonui.exe file with a fresh one, but that hasn't worked. I tried using the windows xp cd to 'repair' it, but I can't remember my administrator password. I tried using the hkey_local_machine, but I can't access the other windows xp installation from the one I am currently on. I tried reverting back to the original with 'XP LogMod 2', but that only works with the OS you are on, not another. Do you know what I can do to get this to work, by changing files within a different installation of windows? Thanks for any suggestions.
