It depends on with icons, most are in the imageres.dll in both C:\Windows\System32 and C:\Windows\SysWOW64, but some like in the notification area and control panel will have there own .dll.

You would need to find/make the icons.

This tutorial will help some Icons - Change Using Resource Hacker

If you needs some help just ask.

I believe you'd need to do it manually as Bongo pointed out above Not a quick, easy task I'm afraid. Someone else may know of a different method. A Guy
