    (Previously posted to microsoft.public.windows.group_policy, but it
    looks like the answer isn't available as a group policy, so I am more
    looking for a registry key or way to script this, which I will then
    deploy via GP)

    Does anyone know if it's possible to use a Group Policy (or GP
    preference) to set user account pictures?

    The thought would be to copy user pictures out from a central location
    on the LAN to a predefined location on each PC, and then use a registry
    setting (or whatever method is appropriate) to force the appropriate
    image to be used as local pictures.

    We're running a mixed Vista and XP environment, although it's really
    only Vista machines that we're concerned with since XP doesn't make as
    big a deal over the user pictures.
