Go to your Control Panel and click on User Accounts , then Change a user account , then click on your name, in there you can add a picture.

It's one of your options.

1.What are your logon settings? Are you using Classic style?


2. do you have the desktop set up to look like classic windows?


In those settings you can't do it like that. the only style that works is the windows xp settings. if you want the pictures you have to use the XP blue, silver or Olive green and cannot use the classic style of logons. Those are the only ones that I know of that let you have pictures there.

As long as your not using the classic menu option, click on Start and then just click on the picture. That will open the change picture properties.

To change from classic start menu to the new style, or vice versa, right click on a blank area of the taskbar> properties> 'start menu' tab. Set it from one to another there.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
