Really not sure you can change the icons, albeit they can be turned off. Just go into toolbar properties then click on "Start Menu tab" then click on the "customize. . ." button to turn them off. Not sure if that will help, but it will remove them from the start menu. Good Luck.

Hello Pajololl,

After you set the permissions to "Allow" your user account "Full Control" of the DefaultIcon key in the left pane of the registry at the locations below for these items, you can right click on (Default) in the right pane of DefaultIcon, click on Modify, type in the full path of the icon within quotes that you want to use, and click on OK to use it. When finished, log off and log on, or restart the computer to apply the new icon.

Help and Support:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT_CLSID\{2559a1f1-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}

Default Programs:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT_CLSID\{E44E5D18-0652-4508-A4E2-8A090067BCB0}

Hope this helps,
Shawn

UPDATE:
