    Cannot change Account Avatar/Login Image in Windows 10


    Windows 10 Experts please help.....

    As stated in the title.

    I have tried every method known to the internet; this including
    - Changing image in Microsoft Account => nothing happen, cannot change the image on local PC
    - Create new local profile => nothing happen, cannot change the image on the local PC for that new local profile...
    - Remove "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\SystemData" Folder => still cannot change the image on the local PC
    - Try all settings in GPEDIT.msc under Administrative Templates\Control Panel
    - Run Microsoft Account Troubleshooters

    I am using latest Windows 10 Pro,

    This is the error when I tried to change the logo in the Settings

    Click image for larger version.

    Go to https://account.microsoft.com and sign-in with same email address as computer. Click your avatar/default icon above your name, then 'New Picture' and adjust to fit. Picture will be stored in this hidden folder location (type into File Explorer address bar), View only - %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\AccountPictures

    Thanks mrgeek, I had just figured out the issues. Using Process Explorer, I had isolated the issues to some of the third party libraries used by Adobe Photoshop & Media Player Classic. Using autorun to remove them from the system had fixed my issues.
