Group Policy Change Default Account Picture

I used Group Policy to change the account default picture.   I replaced the default file via GP and selected to use the default only.  It seems that the login pictures for windows 7 clients change but the pictures in the start menu bar are the old pictures also the windows 8.1 clients are showing neither.  Any ideas?

Have those windows 7 clients with the old account picture been restarted since the policy was applied? Have you confirmed those clients are correctly receiving the policy by being in the correct OU where the GPO is being applied?

Is the GPO you're applying the below?

Computer Settings-> Policies-> Administrative Templates-> Control Panel-> User Accounts-> Apply the default logon picture to all users

The account picture itself is it on a network share where all clients can access, IE Sysvol? or is it being copied to the client and then being applied?

This policy setting allows an administrator to standardize the logon pictures for all users on a system to the default user picture. One application for this policy setting is to standardize the logon pictures to a company logo.

If you enable this policy setting, the default user logon picture will display for all users on the system with no customization allowed.

I did that but, originally it was not on a sysvol now it is.  The logo now shows where is should but my issue is that the login page looks good and the picture under user accounts looks good as well but the start bar logo is a little off the is a blank line that is about 1/10th the height of the logo now it is not 128*128 due to it becomes distorted any ideas there?

I think you should log a different question for that as I've resolved your initial issue.
