Remove user picture from start menu

Hello All,

This is my first post, I do hope someone may be able to help assist me..

I simple wish to remove the user picture, not change it, remove it completely. I did it on Vista but the same does not work on Win7.

Just to clarify, click on orb. Top right you see user picture. Go to Music, Computer etc and the image changes. I want to remove the image.

I have Aves style builder which I used with Vista but does not seem to work well with Win7.

Ok I have finally found a way to achieve this. First you will need win7 style builder. (Previously vista style builder.) Ave's Vista Style Builder

Choose to modify existing style and choose your current theme/ style.
Click the drop down in the search box, (top right,) and set it to properties. Search for USERPICTURE:BOOL. Set it to false (untick it) Click on the test style and then when you go to exit it asks if you want to use current style click yes.

You can download my theme by first going here, once you have it you can then modify the sound, wallpaper etc to your own.
