Vista User Account Picture

Which is the location where the choosen "User account picture" is stored for each user in vista?
I  know the folder %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Anwendungsdaten\Microsoft\User Account Pictures
but i search the setting in the user profile (registry or filesystem)

I already used filemon, regmon ... but i can't find anything!

Thanks much

thanks for your comment, but i already know this.....what i'm searching for is, where it is stored which user has configured which picture...

....like the wallpaper settings in the registry.: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\Wallpaper

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures

User Accounts: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\user.bmp
For Guest Accounts: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\guest.bmp
