Windows 7: How can I find the name/location of a system tray icon file?

How can I find the name/location of a system tray icon file?

I want to change the icons for programs that display in the system tray (notification area) as decribed in this article: Notification Area Icons - Customize.

Specifically I want to change the icon for MS Security Essentials but I don't know what it is called or where to find it, presumably somewhere in the system 32 folder.

For example the volume icon is located at: C:\Windows\system32\SndVolSSO.dll

Welcome to the Seven Forums

It looks like MSE icons for the system tray are in EppManifest.dll in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client folder.

Thanks. Unfortunately I couldn't change the icon for MS Security Essentials though. Maybe it can't be done?
