Uploading 64 bit system files now .

What you are to do with it is ... Take ownership of your original imageres.dll , take a manual backup, and replace the original with the modded one .


Otherwise , you can change icons ( in 4 th post of the thread ) using resource hacker, anytime

Attaching the icons in a zip, there are icon group nos 4, 5, 6 and 162 , to be replaced in imageres.dll , against corresponding icon group number .

Just now uploading the imageres.dll for 32 bit . Later tonight I will install 64 bit win 7 on my linux machine, and will make 64 bit imageres.dll file .

To change those files, you may use Browsing deviantART , But it is better to have a manual backup of your original imageres.dll in a secured place, for further manual return to the original system files ; and Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup , for any critical need .
will this work for XP x64 pro?

Hi Linda , You may do it with two alternatives . In post 11 , I uploaded a 64 bit imageres.dll ; you may download all the seven parts to get it , and replace with the original one .

Otherwise , you may download the ico files from post 4, and make your own imageres (whatever the bit may be ) by editing the corresponding icongroup numbers ( a detailed tutorial link is below my sig).

If you have any further query , just ask me . If you have any ideas about what an icon may be, please let me know . I am glad that you liked it
