Windows 7: User account picture location HP windows 7 ultimate.

User account picture location HP windows 7 ultimate.

I'm trying to find the file location for the user account picture, I found a page that said it was in programData\microsoft\... etc. All I can find in there is the user.jpg (as it said), but that's a random flower, not the picture I set it to, also in there i find a Brydon.dat (my computer and account's name), but it's a blank file.
I'm on an HP computer running windows 7 ultimate (OEM) and the default picture was the HP logo.

Hello packocrayons, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The user account picture is stored in the hidden folder below as (username).bmp.
C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Local\Temp

User Account Picture - Change
The other location you mentioned is for the default image when the account is created new instead.
User Logon Display Picture - Set Default for All Users
Hope this helps,
Shawn

You're welcome.

Those are data files, but I have no idea what data they store.
