    Are you using a legit version of Windows or a crack/hack ?

    My copy is legit and activated but the "browse" button does not work. I have seen a lot of posts on the internet about this issue. I also tried to use a MS account and that did not work.

    Hello guys,

    You might see if running a sfc /scannow command may help.

    If not, then you may need to refresh Windows 8.

Change user account picture from another user? in User Accounts and Family Safety
Hi there, In Win-7, as an admin-user, it was easy to change the picture from another user. In Win-8 I'm only able to find where I can change my own picture. Can't I set it anymore for other users? Cheers.
