Changing IE9's Icon?????

HI there everyone
I use google chrome for my normal browsing
but since I am a forum moderator,I must use IE(the reason is that IE shows the preview of what you've done in a topic(e.g Hyper linking , importing an image and etc).But other browsers will show the html based topic(when you are writing one I mean).
And since IE8 is so junk!!! I decided to move to IE9.But the point is I really don't like it's icon.(visual things are very important for me)
In short,Is there a way to change IE9's icon?
Or are there any other browsers that show the preview of a topic when you are writing one?
Thanks in advance

I change it by right clicking and select properties of the shortcut to IE9
there is an option to change icon where you can select any one of lots of them.

I don't believe that you can change the icon on the program itself but
you can change short cut icons.

Is IE8's icon among the icons you can choose?

No, you would have to download it from somewhere.

Found this on another forum.....

Quote:
Open the registry editor, navigate you way to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\ StartMenuInternet\IEXPLORE.EXE\DefaultI con

It should look something like C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe,-9

All you have to do is to change the value to
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe,-32528

Log-off or restart and Viola! This will change the existing IE icon to the current IE8 icon (with the yellow swish). If you like the "classic" IE icon, change the value to 0.

Issue resolved.
