    Flush the icon cache by getting tweakui, that should do it

    Thanks but both icons are still present using the rebuild icons command of TweakUi after restarting the computer. Also deleted iconcache file in documents & settings manually & restarted with no go, help

    You have to use a registry setting to do it.

    You could redo the shell32 replacement. In other words just replace the shell32.dll again and see if it clears up.

    Cant you just redo with replacing the shell32. It will get cleared when you will replace the shell32.dll again.
