I have internet writing with the backdoor trick now :D

And no you don't need to place it into the Start Menu. It's already there under All Programs. For me anyway.

And no I didn't notice much of a difference but I only played for like a minute :lol:
Someone else try this with a better system that can run games and post if they notice a difference.

INTERNET EXPLORER DOESN'T WORK. You have to use Firefox/Chrome/Safari. It's bonded to explorer.exe so if that doesn't load then IE won't either.

I'll try Call of Duty 4, and see if there is an improvement.

Internet Explorer 7 is working fine on Vista, maybe its IE8, or Se7en?

Possibly I dunno.

It may lag a bit because it's starting to get slow on me :(

It's funny how the login window is sitting in the superbar :D

Press the show desktop and you can see the desktop picture, but then it goes away, when you open something.

From what i've seen, there is a slight improvement in loading times, and a frame rate increase (5fps). I'm thinking of creating a Installer and an application to open explorer.exe automaticly. So all you have to do is install the patch, and when you are on the logon screen, you just have to click the icon.

Good idea. Can you create another icon though? I mean if someone was blind or something how could they log into Windows :P

Seriously though, someone has to figure out how to change that damn icon. I'm guessing it's in the registry. But I wouldn't know where.

btw, IE froze on me and I can't open Task Manager any more nvm it's just IE lol :lol:

If I ended LogonUI.exe process, what would happen? Would this limited function desktop still work? f**k it. I'm gonna try it :D
^Damn, just restarts the process.

Just don't end winlogin.exe. That doesn't restart :lol:

It kicks you off your desktop and you have to start over <_<

LOL! :D

lol. It would be cool to find a way to get rid of the logon, and just use the desktop. Then you could have full functionality, and because you are on the SYSTEM account, you could replace system Files!!! :woot:

Yeah but for some reason you're not allowed to open any Windows Explorer. I even tried "start c:\" in cmd from the start menu not utilman cmd.

It says it's not a correctly configured identity. Check the user name and password.
^Can anyone explain why? When we are SYSTEM?

Okay this doesn't work for me but:

by typing taskmgr.exe in Utilman cmd you can open the Task Manager duh
But by pressing New Task>Browse, you can open a mini-explorer

Try typing taskmgr.exe (Browse Button let's you run a mini-windows explorer), Notepad and even Explorer.exe!

Well thats a start, now we need to try and find a way to get the full explorer. I've even tried xplorer2, which is a explorer replacement. That won't load up either.

Working on the installer, just have to find a way to get it to take ownership of the file, so it can copy the file.

Couldn't you just use the cmd codes they used? And have it all cmd based? But I dunno how you're writing this.

I'll give it a shot. The only thing is that my file has already has been taken ownership of. I'll have to test it in a virtual machine.

EDIT: I was just going to use WinRAR SFX lol. I'll ask someone else to code an installer. I'll put it in first post.

I GOT IT! But once you hit the login screen it's manual because I don't know how to do that.
Well, half of it was copied from the website and the other half I wrote. Let me know if this works for you.

To run: right click>run as admin. Only works if Utilman is in C drive. Sorry folks.

I wrote in Windows 7. It works for me. You can look at the code by rightclicking and hitting edit.

Also, I put in pauses between each line so that I could check what was happening. Once again. ONLY WORKS IF UTILMAN IS IN C:\

I removed the attachment because it is included in the Auto_Patcher in the first post.

Thanks!!! Could i modify it, so when you hit the logon screen, you click the icon, and it automaticly opens explorer.exe?

Installer has been created. Download on Post #1.

Update:
We (MitsaBishi and me) are working on this to be automated. We have an Installer and an Uninstaller. We are in the process of finishing this :)

To uninstall, run Uninstaller Backdoor Vista Login.bat, located on the desktop. You may move the uninstaller off your desktop to a place of your choice.

Depends on where you downloaded the installer because it extracts to the directory it's in. Besides that one wording issue, it's good :)

For those that are wondering: the pauses are supposed to be in there. It's for you to make sure there are no errors.
