    If you want you can use StyleXP software on your system. It is a utility tool that can be used to change your desktop icons as well as your folder, my computer, control panel, my documents, my music, etc and even you can change your hard drive icons on your system. Not only that you can apply it as your themes on your system. You can even use it as your bootscreens and can also change the icons of your explorer bar.

    For that you need to Right-click on the desktop and then choose Properties, then on the Desktop tab you need to choose the Customize Desktop button. Then on the Desktop Items dialog you need to select one of the icons and click on the Change Icon button. Then you need to just click on the Browse button and need to pick whichever icon file you want to change it. Now, you can change the icon for many folders by right-clicking on the folder and choosing Properties, and then clicking Change Icon on the Customize tab.
