Thank you. Great work. Not sure if I will do it, don't want to mess things up but I will look into it. If I try it and it works I will let you know.

Where do you have the icons saved at on your system? This way I'll test using the same to get the best test results.

Shawn very cool thanks so much,I have had the icons in many places Sys32,SysWOW64,also on my USB Hard drives,I put them all over the place out of frustration lol,I also used reshacker and put them in imageres.dll with no help and it seem to cause other problems.BTW thanks again its really cool of you to do this, and hopefully you see something Im doing wrong or I missed doing.I have also used other icons and same thing,even refresh doesn't always change them only a rest will work every time.

I would need the actual .ico files themselves instead. You could place them in a ZIP file, and upload them if you like.

@MIKLO

The icons would look better if they were 256x256 pixel Vista style icons instead of 96x96 pixel.

The Recycle Bin didn't automatically change with your icons until I did what was in the tutorial on the first page to add ,0 at the end in the registry.

Do you have the icons saved in say your Pictures library or folder?

Shawn,
WOW dude thank you so much for your hard work doing this How lame of me I really apologize, I had the "0" in the registryat one time but was changed after a restore but the ICON size was in fact 96 as you know. Whats really bad is when I looked in my files I had the correct size just not in correct place, I sure spent a lot of time spinning my wheels and then wasted your time on a simple lame mistake I should have seen. Again Im sorry to waste your valuable time but Im really happy to finally have this problem solved. Im sure to some it doesnt seem like much of a problem but it just annoyed me,
I often say Im smarter than the machine but in this case it was you that is smarter than the machine. I can't thank you enough.... very cool of you to help. Thanks again so much
With Respect,
MIKLO

That's all following Murphy's Law: "Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong."

Btw, forgotton (re-) patches :

I write down every patch and every installed program with date and location
in a simple text file, not stored on the C: drive.

So in case of restoring a backup, I can look up what patches/programs I now
had to reinstall.

Regards,
Tom.
