Account picture and frame removal

Hi there Windows 7 lovers.
I'm struggling to find a way to remove my account picture&frame completely at the logon screen. I would like to remove it and still keep the "password box" there to sign in.

Hope there is someone out there that can help.

Thnx

I think this is embedded within the Windows coding. I can't find a way for the user to delete the frame. You could, of course, create a "picture" using a plain color to match the screen background color but you would still have the frame. Is it that annoying to you really? It's not as if you view it for that long or that often

A very different question indeed. I won't ask "why you want to hide a picture" but it is part of the operating system coding as mentioned by Mitchell. You cannot hide it but just visit the Control Panel, open User Accounts, click on the link Change my picture and choose another picture to your liking.

Why?

Anyway, experience teaches us that messing with any part of the start up process is a really bad idea (unless you particularly like not being able to start Windows and going round in infinite loops!) so this is one of those rare occasions where even if I knew (which I can neither confirm nor deny) I wouldn't tell you. Whatever grief the current setting is giving you it is as nothing compared to the grief that probably will result from changing it!

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.

Logon Picture Frame?
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
