    Guest Account Photo is empty (not default)

    I searched in the internet how to change the Guest Account photo so I changed things in the folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures . I also ended up removing the icons already in there because I still couldn't change it. The result was my Guest photo became empty. Now, there are only two items in that User Account Pictures:
    MyAccount.dat (image)
    Guest.dat (image) ---- I moved a photo in the folder and renamed it Guest.dat hoping that will make it work
    but only the MyAccount's image is showing.
    Here's for the Guest Account.

    I would appreciate your help.
