Windows 7: User pictures appear as white square

User pictures appear as white square

Hi all
In my control panel, in the users section all the user's pictures appear as blank white squares. In the login screen I can see the pictures but I'm wondering why they appear as white squares in the control panel and if it is a bug which can be fixed.

Thank you in advance
Fela

Never noticed that before, but I have the same thing. Its my guess, that if you call it a bug or the way it is suppose to be, I do not think there is a user friendly way to change it.

OK well I'll post if I ever find a solution (of course it's not a pressing issue )

I thought it was the screen that showed all the accounts, after selecting manage another account.

Guess you like that pic.

No, that picture does appear. I'm talking about the ones that are supposed to appear on the 'manage another account' page - on that they're all white. They're also white when changing the picture.

I think that is what you get with 7. We will see what the other members have to say. For one, even if it is a problem, I am not going to fool with my system to fix it, not worth it to me.

Mine aren't like that, I can't find anything on google either, except your post.

Yes, I have my account (standard user), and the built in admin account which I enabled (default being disabled of course). As I said though, this isn't exactly a pressing matter so I'll leave it for the time being until a solution crops up out of nowhere
