Where do i get Ubuntu system icon set.

As the title says Can someone tell me where do i get Ubuntu style
System icon set.

Actually i am trying to setup a Ubuntu like customization.
I dont want to install any Skin pack so iam trying to get it manually.

I have got Theme,Logon screen, courser's And a bit more. but i am stuck
on a few things like the system icons
and second is Unity bar couldn't find anywhere.

I am wondering If there is any Ubuntu style file browser for windows.

It'll be very helpfull if you can suggest me something else for it.
Thanx

As phrased, your question is very difficult to answer ... because there is no such thing as an "Ubuntu" icon set.

When you install Ubuntu, it does use a default icon set -- and that is usually the "human" icon set -- but the actual set you're using depends on which theme you are using. Each theme has its own icon set. In addition, icon sets come in different color depths and different resolutions. There is not one single set that Ubuntu uses.

As a start, you should post a thread on the Ubuntu forums asking how you find out what specific icon set you are using with your desktop.

Same thing with "Ubuntu-style browser" -- what is that? I've used Ubuntu for years, and the browser I use most often in Ubuntu is firefox -- which is installed by default.

You could check with Stardock Corporation to see if they have something to use. Some of our icons makers may come by and make some icons for you. If you can find some samples for them it would be helpful.
It think you will have to use some sort of theme pack to change the look of windows though.

I am sorry i wasn't able to explane what i actually wanted.

From System icon set I mean something like this: Ubuntu 10 IconPack Installer by ~JokerneB on deviantART

That is what i wanted but sadly its only for x86 Windows and i am on 64x.
And i don't think that the creator have any mood to create a x64 one.

And from File browser I mean 'Explorer' like windows explorer not internet browser.

If you can find the .dlls with the icons you want you can make them yourself.
Sometimes you can extract(with 7-Zip) the iconpack.exe and get the .dlls or the icons.
I found these Faenza IconPack Installer by ~Mr-Ragnarok on deviantART extracted the rar and open the folders and the .dlls are in the but they are for build 7600 but using the 30 day trial of Restorator - Bome Software - Restorator - the resource editor for customization, localization, and translation. you can open a .dll and drag the icon folder out to your desktop, then get copy's your .dlls from your computer (x86 and x64) and open them with restorator and drag the icon folder back in your .dlls then change them yourself.

If you need help let me know.

The imageres.dll has most of the icons that you would want to change anyway but it's still your choice if that's all you want to do.
You can use the method I pointed out in my above post or you could try this tutorial.
