    I get why you suggest restoring the original DLL first. But why not have the script look at the MD5 of the current DLL, and if there's no match, look at the MD5 of the BAK? If that matches, then you're good. Already have a backup and it just means the script has been run before; replace the current DLL as usual and of course don't replace the BAK.

    I have updated the patcher to LogonController_Patchv2.zip
    Some users have an issue with the background image not showing behind the login screen from boot, fixed.
    I also realized that you can't have the secure sign-in option enabled!, (eg, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete)
    This is not a standard setting and the hack doesn't work, the new patch also solves that issue.

    Try this new patch and choose "Restore lockscreen" first when running Install.cmd,
    so the original dll file is restored before running the patcher again.

    Download:
    LogonController_Patchv2.zip
    Thank you! Works as expected and without problems.

    Hi there "meh"

    The reason for that is because a user might have the patch in place, (And the corresponding LogonController.bak file)
    He then updates his windows to a new version via WU.
    Then the script might not recognize the new dll, but finds a match for the BAK file.
    Simply replacing the original without making a backupfile would then be a bad idea.
    Making a backupfile anyway would solve that issue, but a new one arises, and that is if a user hasn't updated Windows,
    but simply want to run a new version patcher, then making a backup would overwrite the original.

    I might add, If you update Windows to a new version dll, with the patch in place, you need to manually delete
    the bak file to run the patcher again.

    Believe me, I thought about this

    If the original didn't match, the script would exit. Obviously. Did I suggest replacing a new, unrecognized DLL? No. Didn't think I needed to be that explicit. I get it. But never mind. Keep putting the onus on the user.

    Yesterday: Installed Win10 over win8.1 on another laptop. Ran Patch V.2 and worked as expected!
    Today: Automatic updates installed and the Lockscreen was back on.
    I ran the Patch again and it said: Already Patched, worked fine after Hibernation, but not after re-boot. Still "suffering" from annoying LockScreen.

    Found the solution: I am using Total Commander for File management. There is a registry "patch" called "Take Ownership". When running this patch it add's an option "Take Ownership" to the "Drop-Down Dialog Box".
    After "Taking Ownership" of the LockScreen.dll file and running the Patch V.2 again it worked as it should.
    This is the fore-mentioned reg file :

    As a safety feature you can't apply a patch twice, as you would then overwrite the backup file.
    The script looks for LogonController.bak in the system32
    folder which is the backupfiles name.
    If you update Windows via WU, and you got a patched dll, you have to manually delete the LogonController.bak
    file from System32 if the LogonController.dll gets replaced, otherwise the patcher wont run again.
    (access denied message if you try to restore, or Already Patched if you try to patch again )

    I have updated linked #162 with this info not to cause confusion.
