I don't believe so. It's not a windows programs icon if that's what you mean. I have no trouble changing the color of any icon IF I CAN FIND IT to change it.
As suggested by sunsider above I tried the icon program microangelo, and as with other icon type programs I can search all the EXE, DLL, actually all the files that this small program delivered into the suggested c:\Program Files\directory. I changed the icon color sucessfully for the short cut icon on the desktop and all the other little icon that can be seen through windows explorer. I just cannot find this program specific icon that shows up on the taskbar when minimized or the system tray icon.
I know it's somewhere, it's just a matter knowing where to look, and it's got me stumped.
