User Picture and Frame

I have been using a third party theme called MC Bleau. I would like to remove the user picture and frame from this one theme. I have Restorator but I never have used it. Any help with this would be appreciated. I don't want it removed from the Logon Screen though.

You could do this but it removes it from all themes.

1. Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures folder
ProgramData is hidden use step 3 of this tutorial to unhide it File and Folder - Hide or Unhide

2. Rename user.bmp and guest.bmp to user.bak.bmp and guest.bak.bmp

3. Restart

Edit: If you want just 1 theme only then the only way I know of is to buy http://www.vistastylebuilder.com/windows7.html there is a setting to do that in the .msstyles

This won't remove it from the Logon Page will it?

I searched for some other methods and one from Door to Door worked but only on one of the Aero Themes. I think I will have to fool with the msstyles to get rid of it and it is not that big of an issue. I can live with it. Thanks for your help anyway.

I got it to work in VMware, I just tried my laptop and it did not work for it
It you can get permission from the theme maker I have Windows Style Builder and will do it.

sorry

Thanks but I have no way of contacting him. He goes by Creator and his first name is Rob. He got some kind of illness awhile back and has stopped themeing.

I didnt do much looking around for this because I didnt know how to word it. But is there a way to change the logon picture frame for the user? Maybe a registry thing? I'm ok with editing system files if that's the case. Thanks, ~Curt
