It is time for the icos now

Later I will make imageres.dll files with those icos , for both 32 bit and 64 bit . I hope everything will be completed within Sunday

The icons may be added to the system by using the Icons - Change Using Resource Hacker tutorial

Voila !! Look at my movie folder

Just now uploading the imageres.dll for 32 bit . Later tonight I will install 64 bit win 7 on my linux machine, and will make 64 bit imageres.dll file .

To change those files, you may use Browsing deviantART , But it is better to have a manual backup of your original imageres.dll in a secured place, for further manual return to the original system files ; and Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup , for any critical need .

Thanks Shawn ! Thanks Julian ! I tried to do it my best , but still incomplete

I planned to make a imageres file of 64 bit , and so installed it on a different machine . But putting that hard disk on this machine creating some problems to boot .

I am sure within tomorrow I would be able to solve that issue, and upload a 64 bit imageres file .
