    Just use CustomizerGod, it's much easier to use.
    Some of the icons can't be replaced because it's stored in the system32.dll.

    I had to blank a password for a Vista installation the other day (a Dr. friend had an "old" Dell Vista laptop she wanted to donate to someone on which she'd forgotten her password--and of course she'd long since lost her system disks) and I was amazed at how elegant and classy the Vista desktop--even on a laptop--used to look--I'd forgotten. They're stripping everything down in Win10 so that they can appear to have a consistent interface between PCs, phones, and tablets. I'm kind of stoical about it though as I figure that the less hardware resources the desktop OS consigns to itself, the more are available for the programs I want to run.

    Thanks for that , but it doesn't work on my machine. :confused:

    The Reshack() function appears to run but nothing is changed.

    A couple of things that I've noticed in the script:

    1) The Replace() function is commented out.

    2) GUISetIcon("C:\Users\Damian\Desktop\Icon Changer\imageres_151.ico", -1)
    No icon shown in the form as the icon path refers to your machine.

    Hope that helps. :)
