The Default XP Icons (Programs Files, Windows) cannot
be customised, i.e. I cannot change the default Icon.
Other Folders can have the icon changed- (Right
click/Properties/Customize/change Icon). What Registry
tweaks are needed here?

Thanks for any input.

Hi,

Program files and windows files are system files and are protected and cannot be modified or changed. I suggest you to leave these files as it is without doing any modification as it can affect the stability of the system.

check out http://www.virtualplastic.net It has a lot of
information on hacking the system to change icons and what-
not. Although I wouldn't recommend it unless you knew
what you were doing =).
