Hi

It is bitmap 632 and bitmap 633 in shell32.dll

Save the result as shell32.dll on desktop, and then replace it using http://xuliikoo.deviantart.com/art/S...+replacer&qo=0 .

But dont forget to back things up before doing it !!

Have you used the bitmap to replace the original one is a 32 bit windows bitmap? What is the program you used to make your bitmap ?
