Blue border around user picture

I'm looking for what I need to alter to change the glass border around your user picture form the standard blue glass to a custom red glass i've made. Anyone know which resources I need to edit? I've found the images in explorer.exe but for some reason it will not allow me to change the images. Any idea's?

have you tried using restorator? its what i used for the start button.. Open explorer.exe in restorator. under Bitmap the images u want are 7013-7016 copy and paste the image uw ant to use over the images listed save as explorer1.exe. close restorator rename explorer.exe int he winmdows directory to explroer.bak and then take the 1 fromt he one u wanna use and reboot... worth a shot

Edit.. i forgot u first ahve to take ownership of the explorer.exe file and give urself full control permissions

FYI If anyone else runs into this and is looking for the images. They are located in the "windows/system32/authui.dll" file under "Bitmap/12223/1033" and "Bitmap/12238/1033".
