Hi!



I replaced a few icons especially folder icons in imageres.dll as you mentioned. But it's not applied on all folders. Some of them have old icon while others have the new icon. When I use large icons, they all have the new icon. Other types of icons such as desktop and drive icons that i replaced have the same problem. How can i solve this problem? Thanks a lot.

It helps,tx. I got my computer back.
I really dont know why startup was crashed and is there another way to change the icons for files and folders in win 7 because I am only one to get this trouble for this tutorial.
Thanks

Nice to know that you get it back, pal I hope you have followed all the steps carefully, specially taking ownership .

I'd suggest you to Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup first (in case of any severe crash, it will help you to get your things back), and follow the steps again . Hope in the next time everything would be ok

I have just tried the tutorial again and i got the message "Out of system resource" after entering replacing the original icon with my own icon. Did it happen to you when you tried it.
