Remote Desktop client has gotten old.
Of course, you can change the account icon by clicking on it from the Start Menu, bringing you into Control Panel > User Accounts to select Change your picture and choose from the list available or Browse for more pictures...
But if you want to change the default permanently, grab yourself a 128 x 128 bitmap (.bmp) image and name it user.bmp and dump it into: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures, confirm to overwrite.
You can also add your own icons to the list offered by naming the bitmaps usertile45.bmp, usertile46.bmp, etc. and placing them in: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures
As you would imagine, this works for Windows Vista and 2008/R2. Still don't have a Windows 8 system to use, so you're mileage may vary with that...
