    hi mavis! how do i change the run icon??? i've try w/e-icons but still shows the default icon.....i would like to do it hackin the shell32 but do i need to substitute each of the run icons that are in the shell32 or just one? also if i have to change each of the icons can be w/a same size icon for all?

    umm, im not Mavis, but if I remember right, Microsft has disabled changing the run icon... but I think a program called ActivIcons can do that. I have it but i can't check because I'm not at home right now.. why dont u just download it and see... I can change the defualt folder icon as well and more... and it's FREE so I guess you should just download for that !

    double click where it says "Default" on the right, and in the window that pops up, type the path. For examle, mine looks like this for the Search icon:

    D:\Downloads\BackUps and Visual\Icons\MMX MERCURY\MMX Main Icons\Search - Sherlock.ico

    Hope that helps... :)
