alternatives for changing logon screen

I searched around a bit, but couldn't find an exact answer for this. If I download a logon theme... let's say for ThemeXP... is there a way to apply the logon screen without having to install a separate piece of software? Will Resource Hacker do this, or can I manually do it in Windows? I don't want some logon randomizer or any such app having to run at startup or in the background... if I can get around it. :)
It's possible through the registry:

Go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Look for the value UIHost and change the value to the path of your new logon file. So, if the new logon file is at C:\Downloads\newlogonui.exe change the value of UIHost to C:\Downloads\newlogonui.exe

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
