Windows 7: How do I enlarge low res icons?

How do I enlarge low res icons?

I like to use large icons and most programs have high res icons, but for those that don't is there a way to scale them? I don't care if they end up pixelated or blurry, I just want them all to be the same size. I don't want to make new icons or replace them, just scale old 48x48 icons to full size.

Thankz.

I hope that's not the only way, windows can downscale icons but not upscale them? While it is annoying to have these tiny icons sat in big squares I just can't be bothered to redo them.

Hi,
You can always post the images here of what the icons are using a search engine and we can make new ones for you

That's still too much effort for someone as lazy as me. I was hoping someone might know of a simple reg hack to do something like tricking the thumbnail generator to work on icons.
