How do I make "User Group" icons larger in Win7?

How can User Group icons, on the sign-in page, be enlarged in Win7?
On a large high resolution monitor they are very small.

WHS, thanks for the reply.
However that only changes the text size within a window, not the
USER GROUP ICON displayed at Logon.
