Applying the settings to the logon desktop

Next, you need to apply the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop / Welcome Screen (Technically, HKEY_USERS\.Default registry key), so that the Screensaver is invoked when no user is logged on. Copying all the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop (or Welcome Screen) manually is a tough task. Use Tweak UI instead.
Download and install TweakUI.
Launch TweakUI and click Logon, click Settings.
Select Screensaver from the list box and choose Copy Now
The Screensaver settings are applied to the Logon Desktop
Restart Windows for the changes to take effect
Allow few minutes at the Logon screen, to test if the Screensaver is working properly. The Screensaver should launch after the timeout. It will look as if the Company Logo moves around.
Additional Tip
The User interface / slider allows the minimum value for picture change interval to 6 seconds only. To reduce the change interval to less than 6 seconds, alter the registry value named ChangeInterval (Set decimal value 1000 for 1 Second, and so forth) in this key:
HKEY_USERS \ .DEFAULT \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow
For Current user profile, make the change here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow

With no logon wallpaper set, Windows displays a pre-defined color for the logon desktop. ( If you have enabled Welcome Screen, press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice to see the logon screen background color. ) To change the logon background color to that of your choice, you need to alter the registry:
Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT and press Enter
Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors
Backup the registry key by exporting to a REG file
In the right pane, double-click Background
In the Edit String dialog box, type the Color code in R G B format and then click OK.
Example: Type 0 0 0 if you want to see a Black background. You can choose any combination from 0-255
Points to ponder
If the logon Wallpaper is set, the background Color may not be visible. So, you must reset the Wallpaper value to a blank string in this key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
If the Background value is set under the following Winlogon registry key, the above setting is ignored. In other words, the Winlogon\Background value takes precedence over the .DEFAULT..\Background value.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

How can i get this genuine microsoft logo on my

This logo appears when the Microsoft OS installed on your computer has not been properly activated with a product key. This prevents Microsoft XP and Vista from installing Windows Updates like security patches and upgrades to Windows software.

You can find out more about the Windows Genuine Advantage program here.

If you think you have a valid copy of XP or Vista installed, call Microsoft tech support. Be prepared to provide the license key. If you PC was purchased as a package deal with XP or Vista installed, the key will be on a sticker on the side or back of your PC. If you XP or Vista was installed after purchase, the license key is stickered to the packaging the OS came in.

I cant find a way to use a live webpage desktop

The earlier "active desktop" function in Windows XP that allowed a live webpage as a desktop is no longer present in Vista. It was replaced by the SideBar. You probably need to look for a sidebar gadget that offers this functionality.
