    Ok, so I was trying to associate .ico's to open with Axialis Iconworkshop, wasn't working, so I deleted the .ico profile (since this had worked when I re-associated .png's) and re-created the .ico to open via iconworkshop. THe only problem is that now the icons don't show up as the icons they are, but rather as the iconworkshop icon. I think I have to re-associate the .ico's with rundll32.exe, but besides that I'm up the Ganges with a bamboo oar up my ars. Thanks for the help

    Hey CPU, tried the quick fix, but it didn't work.
    Xie, I tried rebuilding the Icon cache too, and again, that didn't work.
    The only thing I can think of is if someone wouldn't mind looking up under Folder Options > File Types > ICO and letting me know what they have there, that would be super duper. Thanks

    So here's the latest...I had to re-delete the file type, re-create it, then re-apply the reg hack, restart, and THEN it worked. thanks to all those who offered assistance and to CPU for the original reg hack!
