Windows 7: How can I safely change my folder color?

How can I safely change my folder color?

Hey guys pleas tell me how can I safely change my folder color?? because this yellow is tiring already...
But in the meantime I would still like to keep the "live folder".
I previously mentioned that I have a not so good experience with folder icon changing (with IconPackager), but the problem was that it didn't change "all" the folders som of them (the small ones), like the ones are showed in the attachment, became Windows generic icons.
One more thing. I noticed that in "imageres.dll" there is blue live folder parts (screenshot is attached), if this is windows default icons, then it should change all the folders icons I guess (or I am wrong?), so if yes how to apply them for all icons in my Windows.
Thank you for help.. ))
