Windows 7: Profile Photo - doesn't stay invisible

Profile Photo - doesn't stay invisible

I have noticed that selecting the invisible button for my photo,in my outlook/hotmail account,doesn't ensure that it stays invisible, i.e. often when I go to logging out I see the invisibility button unticked.

What concerns me is this. Can my photo show up on an email I am sending without my knowledge or will it be there, i.e. evident in the email I am about to send if it is available?

A swift reply to this would be very welcome - I am about to give my email to someone new.

I'm not sure I understand your question.

What "profile photo" are you referring to?

Are you talking about an email client or a browser?

A bit more detail would help us to better help you.

Thanks,

Sorry I thought I had mentioned it was in my outlook/email account. Now rectified i.e. edited my OP.
Yes it keeps changing there from invisible to available. I now see (from a google search) that this has
been a constant problem for years and doesn't seem to be rectified.

So, really, I just need to know that the photo can't show up on a sent email without my not knowing, i.e. if the photo is suddenly available (without my say so), won't it show up on the email I am sending?

Hotmail/Outlook has recently been updated but this problem still exists in email, i.e. my profile photo has 2 options - available and invisible but it is stuck on available. Clicking on invisible does not result in the invisible option. This must be happening to everyone else with a hotmail account. How to fix it?

Laptop doesn't stay asleep
Hi everyone. I have a Sony Vaio laptop, obviously with Windows 7, service pack 1. It's a little over a year old I believe. It's 64-bit with 4 gb of ram. A few months ago I would say, the laptop stopped "staying" asleep. It's set to go to sleep when I shut the lid, and it does, however the...

My PC doesn't stay in Sleep Mode
Under XP I enjoyed using the sleep mode. I'm not sure if that's the correct translation, in my German windows it's called "Ruhezustand". The PC was off (more or less) and didn't consume much energy, and I could easily wake it up and had all the software and all the files open, just as I had left...
