Explorer icon modification...what's missing?

I have installed Mr. Grims black icon pack a couple times now (reinstall only due to clean install). Anywho, the first time the explorer icon didn't change..second time I did get it to change as I found some things needed tweaking. Now, I'm not entirely sure what I changed but I cannot get it to go back to black, this time. I went into explorer.exe and changed the "icon" to the black one and am still getting (attached) as I pin to the task bar....any thoughts?

AND, I have pinned/unpinned..changed, pinned/unpinned...etc.

The main icon location are in the shell32.dll and imagerres.dll in the C:\windows/System32 directory

If you have a Vista machine you can use explorer.exe for the icon you're trying to locate
