System32 & SysWOW64. I suspect they are identical, but not sure.
They are different they use the same icons but the rest of it is different.

Well, I named the original files to .dll.bak and copied the edited ones to the corresponding folders, rebooted but it didn't change anything.

Maybe that top part is a picture and can't be changed?
Thank you very much for trying.

Thanks for your interest in this Jerry
I did the searches to no avail. I think the MFP in your terms means Multi Funtion Printer, which I don't have. Searched for deviceImage too, nothing, printer.ico brought up the icon I made.
I did figure out how to change the scanner icons to my printer in the printer property window. One issue I think is that my printer uses a generic HP driver built-in Win 7, HP has no Win 7 driver.

I haven't tried to rebuild icon cache since I thought it would change all the work we've done back to default?

hopefully you can understand my stupid maze easily followed diagram below.

Gary rebuilding icon cache will not change anything to default the icon cache stores the information about icons that could be why that old icon is still there, now that you have changed the icon the cache needs new information that might not be the proper explanation but a simple one.

Two more question did you take ownership and give yourself permission before you change the name of the .dll ? And did you change in both C:\Windows\System32 & C:\Windows\SysWOW64 ?

Yessir, I couldn't change the name till I took ownership. And did so in both System32 and SysWOW64, the permission I'm confused on.

Manually Change Device Icons?
Has anyone figured out how to manually change device icons? It seems like there's only accurate icons for Microsoft hardware or more common things like iPods. If so, has anyone started a sort of database of icons for specific models?
