If you dislike the Luna theme on the Windows 2000/NT style logon, you can change it through registry tweaking.

Open Regedit, locate and make backups of the following keys via File > Export:

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors]

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics]

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ThemeManager]

Next, make two new '.reg' files (add .reg at the end of the name when saving) by copying and pasting the following entries into Notepad or Wordpad. For each entry, include only the text BETWEEN the lines starting and ending with //. Right click on each new 'reg' file and select "Merge". Log off or reboot to see the changes.

//START ENTRY ONE BELOW THIS LINE//
