Windows 7: Help me for change folder icons

Help me for change folder icons

Hi, as much as I didn't want switched from Windows XP to Windows 7. One of the things that I hate to this is the view of folders in Windows 7. I have all the icons from Windows XP, extracted and saved in one folder, I tried to change the icon of all folders in Windows 7 in this way: knock with right click on the folder, choose Properties, then go to personalize, choose Change icon, and from the folder where they are stored and retrieved my icons, choose the icon you want, then choose the option apply to all folders and, however the icon changes only the folder on which this procedure is carried out. Can anyone explain how and in what way to do so for all the folders in my entire system to change their icons all at once, and look at which the icon is set. I know that for this purpose, you need to modify and alter the registry of Windows 7 could you clarify exactly what and how to do it?

ThankYou.

To change all the system icons you will need a program similar to Stardock's Icon Packager
