If you disabled the fax/picture viewer by using regsvr32 /u shimgvw.dll, then changing user icons will fail to work.

Problem w/ disabling fax/picture viewer
If you disabled the fax/picture viewer by using regsvr32 /u shimgvw.dll, then changing user icons will fail to work. You need to re-load the dll and it will work. Have only tried this w/ XP Pro. Reload by typing in "regsvr32 shimgvw.dll" w/o the quotes.
