    How do I remove my user picture from my start menu? I find it very annoying.

    I don't know a way to remove it but you can go to "Control Panel - User Accounts" and change the picture to something you like.

    Update: There is a way supposedly.

    It looks like the neowin.net site is the good one. they misspelled msstyles and that made it hard to find. That picture doesn't bother me so I haven't tried it nor do I plan to. It is a how-to about doing it in Vista but W7 and Vista share a lot of the same stuff. The one for W7 you have to pay for. I can't guarantee anything on this.
