The application is called Creative Element Power Toys located at the link below. It says its for Windows Vista but there is a beta version for Windows 7 available. Annoyances.org - Edit File Types in Windows Vista
It is not freeware and expires after the trial period. And doesn't work well either in x64 at least.
I have also tried to change the icons by the tutorial mentioned above and all I get is a white-file icon, not the one I want (to replace the ugly 7-zip icons for zip, rar, iso, etc).
Does anyone know of a solution? I am using x64, maybe that's why it's not working.
Thanks in advance.
