just a few more queries though...

* How do i apply these manually ? so i could keep some of my folder icons

* If i use the installer.. would it replace my "already changed" icons ? or leave it at that ?
* You can manually change them (Right click, properties, then it should be there some place) or use an app like TuneUp Utilities 2009, Winbubble etc.

* Yes they will, but you can replace them again with the icons you want to be shown.

could i ask how to specifically change only the "folders" icons without using any app/software?
Let me get this right, you want to change ALL the folders?

If it is, that can be done in both TU09 and in Winbubble
Can also be done without software, but that would be advanced (Needed to open system files and edit them)

yes all the folders (the ones that look like actual "folders" folders)... if i were to edit the system files.. do i still need to use an app ? if so maybe i'll stick with TU09... btw is Winbubble freeware

Winbubble is freeware, yes You will have to get either Resource tuner or Restorator (Shareware, but there is a 30 day trial) to edit the system files. It will be easier to just use the software i recommended

Could I make a request?

I want hotsexy women icons and buttons, prefer to keep the clothes on, but if you can't help it (if your a guy), you can give one or two nude ones.

I still your guys work, and My jaw hits the floor. Why aren't you guys releasing professional images?! So talented, and you're doing free work. Maybe you guys should group together, make some complete skins/sets, and sell 'em cheap on the site. You could even offer tutorials on how you made 'em, so people could learn.

Well, if their was a 'Mature' section of the forums for those registered as 18+ (sadly that would disclude myself) then maybe it would be allowed.
