Windows XP Icons?

Title says it all. I'd like to have the XP icons in my Windows 7, like this.

I'd install his theme, but I don't need to, as I'm using a completely different theme. I just need the icons to complete. Thank you, to whoever can help me!
Skin Pack
There is the link to his skin if it would be any use.

If you want to do some of the work I can make the .dlls

Put the skin pack .exe in a folder use 7-Zip to extract it in the folder, open the $_OUTDIR folder there you will see the .dll folders with icons in them.

Using the imageres.dll folder I made screenshots to compare them, you can see there are some icons that are in the skin pack that are not in windows 7.

If you want to go thur all the .dlls and tell me which ones you want and list them I can do it.

I'd love to do what you're asking, but I'm stuck at step one. :P When I extract it, I only get a $Temp folder, and inside it are other useless folders and files. I extracted the .exe that was inside the .exe, still no luck. The folder you are asking for isn't there for me.

Do you have 7 Zip?
Put the skin pack .exe in a folder then right click on the .exe go to 7 Zip > Extract Here
