Windows 7: Changing folder preview icon

Changing folder preview icon

I used IconPackager to change icon on my computer. It works great but I have a problem with folder thumbnails. When normal folders icons are simple and black the folder preview use the orange Windows 7 default icon. It looks silly.

I know that I can disable the folder thumbnails. I can do it but then also images thumbnails are disabled and I don't want that. I need the images thumbnails.

So my questions are:
1) How to disable folder thumbnail without disabling images thumbnails?
2) How to change the folder thumbnail icon used to generate previews?

Thanks for help.

//Uups, it should be in the Customization forum, sorry for mistake.
//If you can please move it there
