Windows 7: How can I change the 'Libraries' folder icon (software suggestions)?

How can I change the 'Libraries' folder icon (software suggestions)?

I use LibraryIconChanger for my libraries (videos, documents, music, and so on), but I can't change the 'Libraries' folder with it. The libraries folder is the one you right click to add a new library, just to avoid any confusion (though I'm sure you got that).
I can't use Folderico on it because for some reason it won't allow it.

Do you know any software that can help with that?

Good question. Though I do not have an answer other then third party software I'll be looking to see if someone comes up with an answer.

Free Software Change Library

The software that I used to change my library icons with no problems can be found here at deviantart - 7LiBraryIconsChanger,INC

There are four or five on DA but this is the one that I have experience with. Just thought I'd pass it along.

Good Luck!

This is the same type of software I'm already using, not what I'm looking for. I need a software that changes the Libraries icon, not the icons to each library.

Fol,

Have you already tried the tutorial I posted above to manually change it. It's really not to hard to do so manually.

Thing is, I really don't like to use regedit. I know it's simple )especially since I have the tutorial you posted available), but I still prefer to use softwares for things like that.
