In my display properties/customize desktop / general tab. I dont get the option to change my Internet Explorer icon. I get custom ones that I use with StyleXP.. but no option to change it in my dsktop props.

Note: I noticed that there is a sub-key under the FBF23B42-E3F0-101B-8488-00AA003E56F8 key called DefaultIcon, and the "data" points to a file path. This may actually be the area you'll need to alter so that a new icon may be chosen, despite the instructions on the page ... but I could be wrong. However, the data under the 871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D key just points to the shdoclc.dll.
