I would imagine you would need to create and edit your own image first, and then just browse to it to use it for your user account.

That is bitmap #7013 in Explorer.exe in C:\Windows if you are using 100% DPI settings if you are using a higher setting it could be 7014, 7015, 7016.

Here is that App that may work for you to change that.

Here is the original bitmap #7013.

If you need help let me know.
