That file is for use with a product called Stardock Logon Studio (http://www.stardock.com/products/logonstudio/)

You can hack your logonui.exe file - see a tutorial here: http://www.emeraldcpu.com/loginui/login.html

Obviously there's a potential for screwing up your Windows if you make a mistake, it's your call.

By default Windows XP displays the Graphic login screen with icons and usernames at startup.

If you would like to use the more traditional Windows NT login screen you can get to that screen by pressing Ctrl Alt Del (Reboot key sequence) twice.

If you would like to change to the traditional screen at login, instead of the graphic login screen, do the following:
Log in with administrator access.
Click on Start, Control Panel, and select user accounts.
Click on Change the Way Users Log On or Off.
Click on the Box "Use the Welcome Screen" so that there is not check mark.
If you would like to switch from the traditional login screen to the more graphic screen just click on the box in step 4 above so the "Use the Welcome Screen" box is checked.

Illistrated here to change the actual  display picture

Be aware of using bootscreens as they can render your machine in operable, read any read me files first.
