Remove User picture from start menu?

Hello, is this possible? Thanks.
Edit: What I want to do is remove the entire picture space so that the start menu can extend all the way to the top.

Does the msstyle have to be from the original aero theme to
work with that address? When I follow your instructions. I cant put letters in the search field for decimal. Ive tried to go there manually and the value there is 60
