By default on Samsung Series 7 laptops, the Windows 7 login screen background uses the racing image. According to this question, custom background is typically set through the Group Policy Editor. On Series 7 laptops, that policy is not set.

So how can I disable the custom background?

The custom login screen backgrounds are stored at C:\Windows\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds

Simply rename the directory to get the default screen. Open an administrative console and then type:

cd C:\Windows\system32\oobe\info
move backgrounds backgrounds.sav
