Windows 7: Unable to change User account picture

Unable to change User account picture

I have WIndows 7 Ultimate and when I go into User Accounts in Control Panel I click on "change your picture" and I am only able to use the Windows 7 pictures. When I click on "browse for more pictures" nothing happens.

Any ideas?

Hello Tally,

You might check to see if it opened a window that may be hidden behind another opened window. Sometimes these windows are small and can easily be covered up.

If not, then try a sfc /scannow command to see if it can find and fix any bad system files that may be responsible. Afterwards try again.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Whenever I run sfc / scannow it says I have corrupt files but it cant take care of all of them.

Then, when I try to get the log it comes up with an error and wont put it on my desktop.

Since SFC cannot fix it, and you can view the log for a error, you might consider a repair install. It'll take around 20 minutes to finish, and you will not lose anything.
