I cannot change any user account icons. Under the Default icons it says "No Items". Any new users are set up with a tennis ball with no other options. In the initial set up, there were a lot of choices. Now they're gone. It there a missing file?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.4), Version 10.8

    Hello,

     

    I never encounter this problem before. However, you can try to go to Finder. And and the menu bar, choose go and hold option key on your keyboard. Choose Library.

     

    Choose your HD and choose Library (Choose system library, not the User Library). Find User Pictures.

     

    Please check whether all default pictures are there or not.

    What Mac OS are you using? This forum is for 10.6, your tag says 10.7.4 and also version 10.8.

    I thought of responding and then hmmm, maybe B Oliver has a different OS version and I may waste his or her time with irrelevant suggestions.

    Thanks for posting back. A reinstall is dramatic but definately effective.
