Change folder icon?


i have recently downloaded Leopard icons & was trying to use it as my defaults icons but i didn't knew how to do it except-
eg i want to change "Windows" folder in C drive.

c - right click on Windows - select properties - click Customize - click Customize icon in the bottom- select the desired icon or browse - apply & Ok.

This does change the icon but when i click the new "Windows" icon it shows up another Windows icon & then all the programs inside that folder...

so i searched on & checked the information you given followed every step but still the folders icon are not changed yet, its the same.

Please tell me how to get this working. Thank you.
