Vista Folders on 7

Hey everybody!
Second thread on the forum.
Ok, so the title gives it away a bit. I am trying to get the folders in C:/Users/%user%/ to be the glossy blue/green color like it is in Windows Vista . This is without changing the windows theme.

Thanks
Fire Cat

Thanks guys!
Finnaly, I copied the imageres.dll from my vista PC and used the icons from there.

*Edit*: Where can I find the .dll where the desktop icon is?
