I have new installation of Win XP Home SP3. If I go to control panel -> user accounts I can select new user picture... However, it won't update itself in that window, e.g. if I select a ball and click "change" button (or doubleclick the picture), I will be back to account overview screen (with options to change password, picture etc.), but the user picture will remain the same (duck in this example). However if I open start menu I can see that picture has changed. ??? What can be wrong? If I select another picture without closing user accounts window it will get updated with previous picture in that window (and with correct image in start menu). If I close the user accounts window and open it again it will be with correct picture... Same thing happens for and from different accounts (limited/ admin) :thumbsup:
