Hi Jack ! To change the folder icon, you are to change imageres 4, 5, 6, and 162. (4=open folder, 5=back, 6= front and 162 = work folder) .

If any further assistance is required, please post back

Which third party icon changer you used, Jack ? Is there any backup system ? Post back in detail (which icons have you changed).

Even at the worst stage, it is recoverable using the tutorial here . But initially it is to know what actually happened .

Hi Jack !!

Download Live folder.zip (imageres 4, 5, 6, and 162 ; extracted from my machine) , and change the corresponding icon groups in imageres.dll using that tutorial . It will become normal, as previous.

BTW, yours is 32 bit , or 64 bit ? If you really fail to follow the tutorial, I may provide you my system file ( as I use 32 bit os, it will take a time if you need 64 bit file , coz I am to install that in another machine ).
