The default backgrounds in Windows 7 are very pleasing to look at. However, many of you like to change the login screen. There are plenty of programs out there that do the job well. This one is in a league of it’s own. Logon Screen Rotator (126.96.36.199) is a tiny freeware program that can not only change your login screen, it can use multliple images or folders of images to do it and rotate them. An innovative touch to this program is it’s ability to change at a user specified time.
No installation is required for this to work. Just extract the application and run it.

10. Speed Up Media Browser Using USB Flash Drive
I have quite a large movie collection, and find that MB can take a while to load all of the DVD covers & backdrops for the entire library.
Using a USB Flash Drive should eliminate this problem as they’re generally a lot quicker than your hard drive, anything that’s good enough for ‘ReadyBoost’ should suffice for this. You should see a big improvement immediately.
