Nice add mate Ok I am going to check there

Thanks a lot And most welcome to SF

Edit : Just checked .... it contains only bitmaps ... and no icons . It is though possible to modify those bitmaps, but it is a bit difficult to make a custom alpha channel image like this .

I am to try .

Will you share your method with us ? Anyway , modifying pnidui.dll changed the icon for both of my machines . I plotted the icons for 100% default display . For any other settings, the icon groups will be different .

About wireless icon .... if you change the icons that results the wireless icon , it will be changed . As I dont use wireless , I dont know which ones are those . If you can contribute those , it would be great .

I was just looking over this tutorial after a bit of searching and was wondering if it would be possible to change the Utorrent system tray icon. I found the correct icon to change, however, I was getting errors saying the .exe had been compressed and ResHack was having trouble reading some of it. Because of this, when I replaced and saved, it was no longer a valid 32-bit .exe file.

Any suggestions?

For utorrent make 2 new icons
main.ico 32x32 only!
tray.ico 16x16 only!
and put them in users ................utorrent folder.
