Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

hmm i had that folder but is that already applied??

i didnt see any of the icons there that has been applied on the theme,

hmmm..i mean

for example:

"28.ico" and "277.ico" i didnt see them anywhere here in existing theme

do i need? to replace again the shell32.dll or something??

i actually change the system32 and syswow64 explorerframe.dll so i dont have a problem either of the two will trigger.

actually its OK that im using the default icon of folders for me to not mislead or confuse
but i just curious why it didnt apply or if ever its applied where can i trace or see them??
