Nice screen! I have heard lots about these icons and I had them from when they were on Deskarte, or somehow ended up on there. Is there anyway I could get hold of that shell32 cause it's not available on Neowin, and loads of people on there are asking about it.

Peace!

THANKS THANKS THANKS!!!

This works!!! I'ts alive!!! Aliveee!!! :) (Smile)

Yes, Your instructions sounds a little bit complicated, but I'm so detrminated in My deviation!
So, I made it! And i have one tip: Before Assignation, we must be sure, icon is not bigger than 72x72. If icon has resolution bigger than 72x72, Assigning is impossible. (Sorry for my English).

About Your icons and theme: Very good! Icons are clean and has really good color palette (gray and blue = success :) (Smile) ). Theme is similiar to icons! I like it! (I can't vote again!)

Greetings and thanks again for BIIIIIIG help!

About changing the default icons "run" "find" etc.

All the icons are in the shell32.dll which you'll have to hack yourself. I recommend my method (easiest) using Restorator, I posted a quick tutorial in my neowin forum. Look for the post titled...

MY SHELL32 REPLACEMENT METHOD

on page 5..heres the link...

[link]

Download Restorator (link is in the post) and use the same method that I gave for the AVIs, but you have to go through the "Icons" section of the shell32.dll (theres lots of them) until you come across the default icons that you want to change e.g. run, search etc. Then right click on that icon resource and click "Assign to..." in the context menu, and point to the appropriate individual icon that I have made (which you should have downloaded)

Sounds complicated but do it once and you'll see that its very simple. Make sure you read me post carefully and don't forget to delete the shell32 in your %windir%\system32\dllcache folder.

Please reply if you need more help.

Tell me what you think of the theme and icons pulease! |;|

Wow! Really big, and good work!

BTW: Maybe You can help Me! How to change "run", "find" and "help" icons (as I see, You can do it :) (Smile) ), without entering to registry in XP (which application can do it?)? Or maybe it is only way, to do that? I already try Microangelo, IconPackager, e-icons, iphile... without any results...

Greetings!
