Windows 7: Can't change file type icons

Can't change file type icons

Well, that's the problem, I can't change icons for file types.
I've used several programs (IconPackager, vista visual mester) but nothing happened.
Does anyone have any idea why this may be happening?

Thanks.

Hello Malakias, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This can show you how to change the default icons for file extensions. It's the same as in Vista.
