Maybe it was misunderstanding:Ρ Ι want to change the "personalize" icon (and the "windows update" icon), not icons generally!

Are you talking about the ones in the control panel? If not where are the icons located at, post a screenshot of them and tell us where the locations are.

Should be

Personalization

C:\Windows\System32\themecpl.dll\Icon folder #1
and
C:\Windows\SysWOW64\themecpl.dll\Icon folder #1

Update

C:\Windows\system32\wucltux.dll\Icon folder #1
