    Hey Guys,
    I have a question. I have a friend that's laptop hard drive icon changed on his second partition (D: ). The C: drive icon is ok. I have researched the net and figured out how to do a regedit hack to set it to whatever you want, but we don't know how it changed to begin with.

    Thats the first problem. The second problem is:

    Does anybody know where on an XP system you can find the default XP Icon for drive? I have been searching for hours and can't find it anywhere.

    Anybody have a clue?

    Thanks

    for ur first problem see this page for repairing the icon cache, there are also some programs that can do this for u (iconpackager or tweak ui xp)

    for ur second problem, the icon should be located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\SHELL32.dll

    I followed the instructions but there is no ShellIconCache file or folder at all.

    I also tried to set the DefaultIcon key in the reg key to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\SHELL32.dll,188"

    Is there a different file within Shell32.dll I need to point to?

    Still no joy :doubt:

    My friend and I would like to thank everyone for the help.


    The problem was: There was a CD worth of install info that was copied to the d: drive. There was an autorun.inf file that was included and set the icon to a different icon than wanted.

    We deleted the file and it works fine now

    Thanks again :)
