I don't really know how. Plus, I'm afraid I'll screw something up.

Okay here is a simple way to do it:


How to install:
I use TuneUp Utilities 2009 (Not officialy supported by 7, so you need to run both the app and the setup in vista comp. mode. I also recommend that you ONLY use the icon changer, because some of the other apps might mess up your system.) and winbubble They both work great. You can also customize the app/folder by right clicking the folder/icon and select change icon.

I don't think tuneup utilities supports x64 does it? I use Restorator and you can download a 30 day trial if that helps and it make the job pretty easy IMO.

Not officially
but It seems like it works on 64-bit


Version: TuneUp Utilities 2009 8.0.1100
"Works well on VISTA 64-bit!"

Pros: I like the visual style changer. I have had nothing but trouble with Stardock products since switching to VISTA 64-bit. But TuneUp Utilities styles work perfectly though they need more selections. But you can easily add styles with this utility.
Cons: I did have to change some of the recommended optimizations to suit my purposes, but this was easy.
Summary: I had been away from TuneUp Utilities for several years, having been satisfied with how XP looked and worked, but am glad I'm back to have at improving my VISTA laptop.

Forget it, I'll just use the 7600 installer when I buy the retail version of Windows 7.
