Use Classic shell.exe file.  Removes user picture from Start menu without having to change the theme (Continue to use classic, aero or default).  Also gives you loads of options to customize your experience with start menu and other GUI's.
its really great !!!

Is there a way to do it manually?

I'm also finding that while the .exe removes the picture it also sets my VS to the default Aero. Windows 7 x64.

Check out [link] - he has your utility there for downloading. He is suspicious because of another skin in his gallery - rainmeter - which is not being distributed in the proper way and there's been quite a bit of malware in the rainmeter gallery the last 3 months. So I thought this one might be as well, but it's up to you.

Doesn't work. Just changes the theme to default. No error messages.

Nice app, but everytime i use it, my visual style changes back to default.

It actually changes your theme as its the only way to remove the user picture.

For that, you will have to edit the UIFILE of authui.dll. For more info, check this: [link]
this is awesome.
