    Thank you.

    Is it giving you this error message as soon as you click on "Account Picture", or after you select an image?

    If after, then the image may be corrupted. Try another image from another location to see if it may work.

    If as soon as you click on "Account Picture", then run a sfc /scannow command to see if it may allow you to once all files are repaired. If it still will not let you, then you could also do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this happened.

    Hi Brink, when I select my image Windows automatically resets the size and because of this the picture doesn't fit and becomes over sized cutting it off. Is there a way to change this? I have tried by resizing it to 50% of the original but windows keeps enlarging it even more.

    Hello fleetpursuit, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, upload and attach your picture here, and I'll give it a play to see what the issue may be. If I'm able to size it correctly, I'll upload a copy of a working version for you.

    The issue is that the image is not square with the same LxW pixels. Here's a 1189 x 1189 version in a ZIP file below that worked well for me.

    Thanks Brink, your a star! I thought it had to be something simple and logical, this graphic I used is the original so expected it to work. Glad I found this site, it has been very helpful. Thank you.
