    I don't have Active Sync installed so I am not sure which executable or DLL file the icon is stored in. However, you could use a program like Resource Hacker to edit that exectuable or DLL file and change the icon by replacing the resource.

    Doh just noticed that when I reboot the old icon comes back, yet if I refresh the icons (using tweak ui) my new one comes back, oh well windows weirdness i guess :)

    Don't reboot.
