Windows 7: Windows 7 finger print icon

Windows 7 finger print icon

Is there anyway to change the Icon for the finger print reader? I still want just my usual user picture to show even when I am using the fingerprint reader to log in. Anyone know the location of this icon? Or how to easily change it?

I don't have a fingerprint reader or any sort of biometric security, but I have a very good feeling that the icon is in shell32.dll, which would require a bit of semi-advanced tinkering. As for the setting to change the icon, I would guess it's buried somewhere in the registry.

It isn't a huge deal, just something I feel should be able to be changed. Please let me know if anyone has the answer!
