Windows 7: Replacing default folder icon in imageres.dll

Replacing default folder icon in imageres.dll

Hi,

Any how I was wondering if you would know how to delete the default folder in imageres.dll and import the wanted default folder in to imageres.dll? Or if I could just use Vista x64 imageres.dll on my laptop running windows 7 Ultimate x64?

I am wanting to do this as I am waiting on an SSD and will be formatting when I get it, so I was hoping to be able to have a slightly modded imageres.dll that I could insert just after or during the install process.

Thanks in advance.
