Anyone know the location of this default Windows 7 icon?

It's the default Libraries icon. I've already looked in SHELL32.DLL and IMAGERES.DLL and it's not there. Thanks.

Thanks for the quick reply, man!

Wow, I didn't know that was the icon for explorer.exe. I feel like I should've known that! LOL! Is there anyway to separate the icon from explorer.exe?

I tried to change the stack's icon to explorer.exe and Rocketdock crashed hard. I'd really like for Libraries to be a stack instead of a link as it is now.
