The Welcome Screen Account Pictures (Icons) are all set to the Chess picture
for every user. When I go into User Accounts in the Control Panel I can change
them there to whatever I want and they change within the control panel and
also change at the top of the start menu. However, they do NOT change on the
Welcome Screen and all stay as "chess".
I have tried creating new users and the
same issue occurs with them. They become "chess" on the Welcome Screen but
are whatever else I chose within the user. So, it appears as though a
registry setting or file(s) have been deleted, modified or changed. Any help
would be appreciated

Thank you for the reply, but the problem in the thread is not
exactly the same. I don't get any error messages, the picture just
don't want to change. I did however install TuneUp Utilities 2012
to fix broken registry entries and errors but the problem is still
not fixed.

Then I'm sorry, but I don't have anything else on that issue. Maybe someone else has some thoughts.
As for utilities that fix the registry, unless you know exactly what they are going to do and how to reverse the changes they make it is never a good idea to use this type of software. See this discussion, or this discussion. There are many more, but you won't find any staff member at GeeksToGo that recommends the use of registry cleaners, ever. They have the potential to do great harm and offer little, if any, benefits. CCleaner is the program mentioned, but there are many more out there.
