Look at post #2 in this thread and create a shortcut on your desktop of the icon you want to change, right-click on the shortcut and go to properties, when the property windows open up go to the shortcut tab go down and click on change icon button and look in that address field at the top of that window it should be highlighted already copies that address down and post it for me.

Was that icon from your first post in the window below that address field?

Look in these location and look at all the subfolder's and see if that icon is in one of these areas.
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Device Stage

C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Device Stage

AppData in hidden use this tutorial to show it

Yeah that was the same icon from the first post; as far as I can tell it hasn't changed. I looked in the locations you specified but I couldn't find the icon in there.
