Hm ... I'm not quite sure, but I believe XPize should be able to attend to this.

Have you used the program yet? If you haven't, use the program:

Download it from http://www.xpize.net/download.php (here's a screenshots: http://www.xpize.net/screenshots.php)

OR

use a popular alternative, like the shell packs listed in this board (like http://www.msfn.org/board/ReleaseVista-Liv...10-t119881.html or even the awesome Darkside: http://xpizedarkside.zedox.co.uk/ )

**Use it, and make sure you take note of the changes. If your just testing, make sure you don't change the icon sizes and stuff (since I believe there's a bug in the installer that doesn't revert changes like that).

Don't like it? Uninstall it. Changes SHOULD be reverted, more or less (that's why if you're testing, make sure you don't select any visual settings that you might dislike originally).

Perhaps if you only need that specific icon, you can ask more knowledgeable users how to extract the specific icon and change it.

Have fun !!

Hi, i tried XPize time ago, but i didn't use no more cause no x64 support. That's because i want to change this folder icon "manually". Thanks for your reply

Perhaps you should edit the title and say *Manually extract icon to ...*

I dunno, give it a try? Good luck ;) !!

Is a joke? ohmy.gif

No no, you misunderstood me.

I meant, change the title of this thread, making it more specific.

This is the "Bad" icon, so isn't a common folder, that any program can replace his icon, it contains activex archives for internet explorer. Any help?.

occache.dll and the Offline Web Pages is located in webcheck.dll (but i see your folder attributes are not set to display it right)

You may want to save this as OffWebPage.inf then right click on it and choose install

[Version]
Signature="$Windows NT$"

[DefaultInstall]
AddReg=Fix.Attributes

[Fix.Attributes]
HKLM,Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RenameFiles\ Win,,,"%10%"
HKLM,Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RenameFiles\ Win,FOLDER,,"Offline Web Pages,1"
HKLM,Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RenameFiles\ Win,FILE,,"Offline Web Pages\desktop.ini,6"
