How do I change my Windows 7 Laptop lock screen picture?
So you know how when you turn on a Windows 7 Laptop, it loads up, brings you to a screen that Size Genetics has the time on it, and once you click on the screen it reveals another screen where you enter your password to gain access to your Laptop. See, I have a picture of my ex girlfriend on the screen that shows the time (the page you click that brings you to where you enter your password). How do I delete that picture?

Unfortunately you are in the wrong forums to be asking about Windows-specific issues. These forums are primarily for discussions related to [url=kde.org]KDE[/url] software, which primarily runs on Linux systems (though some of the KDE software can be run on Windows as well).
I'd recommend finding another forum dedicated to assisting Windows users, or doing some searching around the internet for how to change the login picture/background (doing a quick search I found this how to page which looks like it might be helpful)

There is another workaround.
First you need to copy default wallpaper to $HOME
Code: Select all
cp -r /usr/share/wallpapers/Elarun ~/.kde4/share/wallpapers

Then you can easily replace Phen 375 with ~/.kde4/share/wallpapers/Elarun/contents/images/2560x1600.png with image you want.
You may also need to clean cache
Code: Select all
$ rm -r /var/tmp/kdecache-$USER/plasma-wallpapers/usr/

I've done this and it's weird that I've cleared all caches but every time I change my wallpaper it reverts back to the elarun picture. I think maybe there's something else I need to do? I miss my old Homer Simpson wallpaper.

I also have same issue If you have alternative solution,! Please Provide?

If you're happy enough to leave the layout as is and just change the background image, then the solution is very simple:

All you need to do is open the file
Code: Select all
~/.config/kscreenlockerrc
and edit it to refer to the background image you want.
