windows 7
where is this classic icon ?

i have tried to change the default folder icon as described in the excellent article Folder Icon - Change Windows 7 Default Folder Icon
i want the icon as the default classic icon of the winxp as this picture:
to be used in windows 7
but unfortunately i can't find this specific folder icon in the shell32.dll nor in the imageres.dll found in the windows\system32
does anybody know where this icon is, why microsoft have deleted this beautifull icon from the shell32.dll

w7-64, w2k

These are extracted from the old shell32. (It doesn't have all sizes as the new ones.)

If you also want to change the open folder icon, which is displayed in the titlebar/breadcrumbs thingy, and in the taskbar/tasklist, then it's a reg key named 4.
