For a shorcut to the actual target file:
Right click > Properties > Shortcut > Change Icon

I'm not sure if you can change original file icons, wait for someone elses response. There must be a way, but it might be complicated. I'm assuming you're talking about shortcuts on your desktop, etc... so that should work fine.

Use Tune Up utilities 2006. Not only can you change folders, but change the startup screen, the log on screen, and I don't know what. It's awesome. It's only a thirty 30 trial, but it's more than enough too change the folders, unless you wanna change 'em again thou.. (If you need a sk contact me PM...) You didn't hear this from me..
