Windows 7: User icons location?

User icons location?

I really like some of the new User Account icons (called account picture in the Control Panel) that are in Windows 7, and I'd like to use one of them on another PC that doens't have Windows 7. Can anyone tell me where the User Account icons are stored? I can't find the name of them to do a search, or open file location.

Any help would be appreciated.

Here you go:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures
Here are stored default user logon pictures.

The Location is Found here:

Code:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures
Note   Note
The Folder "ProgramData" is a Hidden Folder so you may have to change some Settings


See Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide For More Information

Hope This Helps,
