How do I turn off the login theme in Windows 7 so it looks like a Windows 2000/XP plain login screen? Like this:

XP Log-in

Windows 2000

Do you mean the login picture? The blue one? – alex Sep 4 '09 at 13:56
He wants the login dialog, where you enter your user name and password. – stukelly Sep 4 '09 at 18:46

You might want to try this tutorial, which is applicable to Windows 7. It shows you how to revert to the classic "CTRL + ALT + DELETE" login.

I think that method is the closest u can get with the new Win6.x operating systems... – cp2141 Sep 6 '09 at 11:54
