System File Replacer will be a great tool which will do the replacement properly .

On the contrary, if you want to mod it yourself , just follow this post carefully : https://www.sevenforums.com/943862-post22.html . The needed icons (default folders) are in the attached zip .

Dont forget to rebuild icon cache and run a single instance of disk cleanup or Ccleaner after replacing the file .
Got your message Arc, I had to put it on my skydrive but here it is,

Another way .....

Download Change Windows 7 Library Icons Quickly With Library Icon Changer .... a tiny program and need not to install it . Save the icons supplied by me in a real place like C:\Icons . Now run the program ... select 3 in the left pane , click on "select icons from files" button at right bottom .

Do the same for 4, 5, 6 and 162 . Now Rebuild icon cache , and then run disk cleanup .

It should be changed now .

@Derek , thanks a lot my friend

So your system is ok now , we are to make it take effect . Make it sure that the thumbnail option is checked in disk cleanup , and run it . Then download the batch file from https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...che-rebuild.ht and run it . Restart your computer now . Now all should be normal , but it may take a little time .

For 64 bit system, there is an imageres.dll file in C:\Windows\syswow64 . You may replace that with that one uploaded by Derek . It will force the changes to take effect .

Moreover, sometimes the folders dont take the change effect instantly .... make a new folder, place some files in it, change the icon size between large and medium a couple of time ... they will take effect .
