You can go into control panel ~~>user accounts ~~>change the way users log on or off
Set it back to "use welcome screen" should fix it.

The path [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] exists but no GinaDLL. Any extra help will be very much apreciated.

dowloadable themes usually require some application/software to be applied (e.g. styleXP, themeManager, etc.). what program are you using? as a last resort i suggest using StyleXP to manage your themes/icons/logon screens/bootup screens/cursors/screensavers. it carries windows' defaults so you can definitely use it to 'reapply' the windows login screen.. hope it helps!

I used themeXP, when I set the logon screen to windows standard nothing happens. I think the default screen has been altered so that the modified screen I am getting IS the default. Does this make sense?

oh and their copies of windows' shell parts were provided by the original microsoft design team[at least for ObjectDesktop], so you don't have to fret over having pseudo-shell parts on.

if you haven't made any major changes for a while[except for the theme] you can always use system restore to go 'back' to when your logon was fine.
still, pretty sure styleXP has a copy of the blue one.

Thought I would post this, it may help others.
I noticed while looking at [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon] in the registry that the UIHost data was C:\WINDOWS\system32\logonuiX.exe
When I looked at the C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder in explorer it contained two logonui files - logonui.exe and logonuiX.exe.........
To revert back to the original logon I first deleted logonuiX.exe, then, edited the UIHost data in the registry to C:\WINDOWS\system32\logonui.exe then restarted the computer - hey presto!
So it seems that the original file was not overwritten afterall. I guess I'm just on a learning curve right now!
