    User account image at log-on


    Win10 Pro 21H1

    I don't want to see any image/icon mucking up my beautiful log-in screen. I can not, after reading and following dozens of threads, seem to delete it.
    I have deleted all images in these locations:
    C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPicturesC:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account PicturesC:\Users\Public\AccountPictures

    yet, a semi transparent default icon/image still appears.

    Where is this beast?

    - - - Updated - - -

    In addition, know that I have done a complete search of my OS drive for all .bmp and .png images (hidden files included) and can not find the default icon/image to continues to appear.

    :)

    I suggest you backup your personalized files first before removing the account.
    To delete an account, follow these steps:
    1. Press WIN + X keys and click Command Prompt (Admin) from the menu.
    2. Type the following command and press Enter. Replace test with the name of your sister's account. Code:

    User account image at log-on

    Settings can't be opened using the built-in administrator account


    Hello,
    Unfortunately I have the same issue as Dabz from upgrading win7 to win10.
    I've tried opening settings using all the suggested methods and it will not load using my account with Administrator access nor the built-in Administrator profile. I also tried other methods not listed such as using Run. Control panel is just a stepping stone to add users in Settings.
    I'm also having explorer.exe issues, which I believe is preventing Settings from loading.
    Using cmd (Admin) I successfully created a new user profile [and granted admin access also using cmd (Admin)], however win10 will not allow this account to log on. win10 does not list this new user within control panel but it does in the start menu. win10 will not allow to log in or switch to the new account via the start menu either.
    I can access settings in Safe Mode but this will not allow me to create a new account.
    Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers
