<This may sound like a silly question but have you tried using the 'change
icon' in the folders 'Properties tab'? If not right-click the file/folder you
want to change the icon for. Then select the 'Properties' option, which is
generally at or near the bottom of the list of options. Then in either the
General, Customize or shortcut tab if it is a link to your music folder
select the change icon button. a window will pop up with selection of Shell
icons for you to select, alternatively click the browse button to search your
PC's files. If in the properties window under the General tab the box 'Read
Only' is highlighted you will not be able to make any changes to this
file/folder. You must first clear the 'read only' box. You may also need to
edit your permissions for this file, you do this under the properties -
Security tab. Hopefully you won't have to go through all the editing
permissions stuff, it was all abit of hit-n-miss & a lot of pot-luck for me.
Now i ill try to solve any problems anyway possible before i resort to
messing with the permission of ANYTHING!! on my laptop.
*!!* GOOD LUCK *!!*
