Another question about icons

Hey everyone. I have windows 7 ultimate and I was wanting to put different specific icons for files of the same file type. I was wondering if I could do this, don't mind if I have to buy a program to do it, and if there is a way could somebody please tell me.

Help would be appreciated.

Windows 7 Ultimate

Thanks for the help, but I used it and it was only for folders. I want change for example there are two .iso files. One is called Bob and the other is Jo. For the Bob.iso file I want to have a picture of Bob shown as the icon and for the Jo.iso file I want to have a picture of Jo as the icon.

Thanks guys.

I kinda figured it out. What I did was called Jo.iso, I then changed the program to open with this to my icon and it has that image for it. The only issue is that on the icon it has got that icon for an unknown file (the piece of paper which has a folded corner on the top right hand side) and in that is my image. This means that my image is a little bit shrunken. I was wondering how I could get rid of that piece of paper thing. I assume it's an option matter and if anybody knows could they please tell me.
