Remove the drunk monkey logo

Has this ever happened to you?:  one day you reboot your Windows 2000 machine to find that the default blue background at the control-alt-del screen has been changed to a white background with 3 drunk monkeys at the bottom of the screen.  For some odd reason this also coincides with departure of a former employee.  Curious huh?
Anyway to get rid of the monkeys, look in
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Colors
copy the value of Background_old to Background
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop
copy the value of Wallpaper_old to Wallpaper
You can also get rid of the C:\winnt\drunk_logo.bmp file.
