Hmmm... I'm struggling to even save it elsewhere nevermind overwriting it. I've done all the take ownership stuff (inc. booting into safe mode and even into XP/Vista and doing it from there!).
If you look at the first icon resource using Restorator it says it's an invalid resource. I've thrown it at about 5 or 6 different editors, even tried editing it in my Visual Studio res editor! I think this invalid icon has something to do with it.
ResHacker won't even open it here for me. its left-hand window is just an empty white space like nothing is being loaded.
It could be this build of Windows 7 we're both using is what I'm thinking now (build 7229 x64) because I know it's possible, I've seen altered one's about for Windows 7.
