Hello,

an anyobne help me with this?
I wanted to change the Hard Drive and CD Icons... So I
went from tools->folder options. I selected the Drive
under File Types and clicked advanced, changed the icon
to the one I wanted and pressed OK and Apply. So far so
bad. Nothing happened icon-wise. Opening My computer
still shows the drive with the old Icon. Furthermore,
Double Clicking on the drive now opens the find command!!
I went back and under actions I added an action Open and
typed explorer.exe in the "Application used to perform
action:" field. Now when I double click on the drive its
contents appear on a new Window, which I find really
anoying. How can get to the old setup, or what parameters
does explorer need to open in the same window?

Thanks in advance
