Change the picture on Windows Security logon on screen

I am trying, with no success so far, to change the picture on the Windows Security screen that comes up when I log on to a network location to the same as my User Account picture. Anyone any ideas.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Can you post a screenshot of what you are trying to change?
And post how you get to that screen also.

I did not have a network to login to but I will try to help you.

From what I have read you need to rename the user.bmp to user.bak.bmp and copy usertile14.bmp to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures and rename it user.bmp

How do I change the image in the Windows Security
