Did you just upgrade to or reinstall Windows 7? It's just background wallpaper.
C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info... Rename the Folder Backgrounds to Backgroundsolid or or anything you want Create a new folder called Backgrounds then copy the contents of Backgrounds-nowait into it.

The c:windows\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds folder contains the logon screen background... if you look you will see it has "2 min" as part of the image. I you don't have ..\backgrounds-nowait folder just copy the the BACKGROUNDDEFAULT.JPG from any Windows 7 computer that hasn't been upgraded or re-installed.
