    Account picture error. Setting the account picture failed. Please try again.

    Just installed the new Windows 10 v1809 Build 17763.55 LTSC 2019 EnterpriseSN Version N

    have the default grey person avatar...

    every time I try to change my avatar to any custom image I get the following error.
    "Account picture error. Setting the account picture failed. Please try again."

    Things I tried already
    • sfc /scannow
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    • chkdsk C: /f /r /x
    • Apply the default user logon picture to all users via gpedit.msc
    • %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures
    • ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures
    • ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData
    • Taking ownership of the directory\files as well as renaming directory to "*.old"
    • Creating a new user-account
    • Windows 10 In-Place Upgrade / Reset / Refresh


    Nothing above has seemed to work as its still not changing my windows login screen / user avatar...


    Out of ideas...

    Hey replacing the default avatars does not help either as you can see by this photo taken before replacing with your download still same result in error... I have the default photos already listed in shown directory...
