    manasa: just one of errors new in v1709, nothing more.

    The mechanism is a little bit complicated: Lockscreen image reference is located in user's hive of registry (hkey_current_user), which is attached/loaded only if user is currently logged in. But Logonscreen image should be loaded even if no user is logged; that is why reference to Lockscreen is located under hkey_local_machine hive too. This works correctly for newly created accounts, but not for accounts existing before v1709 upgrade; they see mountain lake instead of their lockscreen image. The program logic is probably broken in this case.

    So do not waste time by fiddling with pictures; deleting one registry key (unfortunately named by your SID but you can find its name easily) restores Logon screen functionality immediately; tested many times.

    Sorry it's a know bug, but glad you could point me in the right direction. All better now, thank you very much.

    Just gotta figure out why my signoff/restart/etc. screen is gray instead of blue now. Open to suggestions.

    Logon/shutdown background color is controlled by Customize - Colors - Windows colors & Show accent colour, so set it again.

    ......why the background color changed from blue to gray when I'm restarting or shutting down. Any ideas?
    Try this:
    Set your Background to 'Centered', which will reveal an additional color palette, then make that Custom Color match the Color in "Colors"

    And just like that, we're back in business. Thank you both! muchomurka, you got me in the ballpark and Edwin, you gave me the baby steps I needed to bring it home.

    Seeing my humble stock setup restored to its default state has produced a joy in me way out of proportion to what is actually on the screen. lol Nevertheless, I'm gonna spend a few minutes logging off, logging on, logging off, logging on ...

    Thanks guys. First rate help!

When I try to lock it, it sometimes forces me to the login screen rather than the lock screen. There is a delay before it forces me back. First before posting: I made sure it is able to go to lock after sleep.
