I am going to tell you a small trick to use a common default logon picture for all users in Windows 7. ( This also applies to Windows Vista ). Now first you must have a picture ready to put as the default logon picture. Select a pic and then place it at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures. Replace the guest.bmp file with your picture.

Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Control Panel -> User accounts
