User Account Picture

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Administration' started by MasterYoda042, Jan 28, 2007.

  1. Hi, I recently got Vista Business through MSDNAA, and after installing it
    (format & install) and setting things up, I noticed a small problem. My user
    icon I set to a picture I had. However, when you open the start menu or go
    to the control panel, it still shows the default flower. Only when you log
    in does it show the correct image. Otherwise, everywhere else it shows that
    stupid flower. I even tried setting the picture to one of the other
    defaults, and it still shows the flower. Could someone help me with this?
    Or tell me where I could edit something to make it point at the right
    picture? Thanks!!

    This is a problem with my current Vista Ultimate install. I've researched
    all over the web for a fix to this bug but with no success.

    The problem is that the flower remains set as the default User Account
    Picture despite it having been changed.

    Any help?

    I have that problem to. I don't think there is a known solution beside
    making a new user account. I tried 1 solution that said "run regsvr3
    shimgvw.dll in the command line", but all it said was that the entr
    point RegisterDll was not found. I hope to bring this thread back u
    with my post
