Windows 7: Blank User Icon in Domain

Blank User Icon in Domain

I am looking for some help with something that I have been unsuccessful in finding a solution for. I am currently doing testing with windows 7 and adding a few computers to our domain. We do not want the computer to remember the last logged in user, therefore when the computer boots up, it shows a blank user icon. I understand the reasoning behind this but I a looking for a fix. I would like to put a custom user icon in there and have it display when users are not logged in as well as make it the default for the user icons. I have already made it the default for the user icons, however am stuck on the blank icon.

Could someone please point me in the right direction?

Thanks again,

-AF

I have already done this, with no success. The issue that 7 is having is it does not have any user to load until I log in. Once I log into an account, I see the icon under the start menu just fine. It loads the default profile and everything it great.

I only see one option for this due to the way 7 is programmed, and that is to change the blank icon completely. The only problem I have is I do not know where that is located.

If anyone could help me out or has a better solution please let me know.

But thank you for the reply. I should have said i have tried setting the default profile.
