Thanks a lot for the help, but I dont have it. I have made the hidden files and folders visible, and made protected OS files visible, too. Still it is not there

Is it due to my 32 bit os ? Or I have messed something ?

While in windows folder (or any folder). Click on Organize in upper left, then on Folder And Search Options. On the view tab, scroll down to Hide protected operating system files. Uncheck that. This isn't recommended of course. Here's an easier way.

Start> Type in run> Click on run in results above and type (or paste in)

C:\Windows\Installer

This will open the installer folder. It's always suggested not to alter or delete anything in this protected folder. You actually have to disable UAC to do anything I believe. I know you know how to unhide the protected folders and use the run window Arc, I'm just laying out the steps should others need them

However, I'd think that the icon that the OP wants to change will be in a dll or exe file in the C:\program files\Adobe folder. You can use resource hacker to change it, but I don't know which is the taskbar icon.

Thanks a lot for the idea, Bil ! I unchecked hide protected os files earlier .... it does not make the installer folder visible.

After your advise ... I pressed Win+R, put the directory there, and searched .... and I got it .

Great What kind of files are those Arc? It would be way easier if the images were indeed there as suggested. And thank you for reminding me about Win + R Arc, I always forget the easy way
