Windows 7 logon box change?

This may seem stupid and random but its been bothering me that i don't know how to change it. You know the user picture box on the logon screen, well it's a square and I want to change it to a circle, like on the macbooks logon. Does anyone know how to do this?

Welcome to the Seven Forums
Those are in IMAGE folder and Bitmap folder in authui.dll that is in C:\Windows\System32 and if you are using 64-bit it will be in both C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and C:\Windows\System32
You will need a resource hacker of some kind so you can extract, edit and import the images in the authui.dll
If you need more help with this let me know.
