Does anyone know how to change the default screensaver that comes up on the Windows Vista Home Premium logon screen if no-one logs on for a while?

That won't work wraith, that's the setting for your profile...when you're not logged in, you're not using your profile, so changing that has no effect.

Ah okay - I misunderstood the poster. I tohught he meant the screensaer after which you have to put in your account password again shows up.

Eitherway, I guess this would require some form of registry hack.

this might help I guess Vista Flash based Screensaver issue : Windows Vista Application Compatibility Toolkit : Windows Vista IT Pro : Microsoft TechNet Forums

Can't remember how to do it, but remember in XP there was a "Super Admin" account. i think it appeared when in Safemode, though I can't remember. Would there be something like that in Vista? Perhaps if you changed the screensaver in that "account" it would hold for the login screen.

You mean opening the System session ? With some trick like a command line such as "at /interactive cmd" and killing the explorer.exe process, then running it again from the "interactive" cmd ?

This shouls do the trick Screen Saver - Specify Default - Vista Forums

the registry method should work at 99%

EDIT

Logon Screen Saver - Vista Forums

follow this one to get to the location, but change the scrsvr.exe in this location instead of the one listed in the first.

Didn't work. All the screensavers I have work fine when I am logged in. But when I change the logon screensaver to something of my choosing like for example Ribbons, it says that I don't have the latest version of Direct3D. That fades in and out as if it was a screensaver itself which is really odd.
