MR GRiM,

It could be. As far as I can tell Windows 7 uses the same type of icons made for Vista. The older icons made for XP and back do not scale to the larger sizes as the ones made for Vista & Windows 7. This will give you more information about the type of icons needed for Vista and Windows 7 that should work better.

Thanks for the Link Shawn, I downloaded Axialis IconWorkshop and had a play with some icons and I have posted them in the custom themes thread, I used ResHacker to extract the icons in C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll and %SystemRoot%\system32\Shell32.dll and I have posted them as well if you wanted to have a play with them.
