    Can you show me how to get the default account pictures for XP through 7.

      The account pictures for Vista/7 are located at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures. The ones for XP are at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures.

    I find it rather counter-intuitive how difficult Microsoft made it to change something as simple as an account picture. You never had to log into each individual account to do this before; one admin account was always plenty. Now you need to bounce through every single account and it’s so much more time consuming.
