instead of ICONs Addons, There are other good methods to change default XP icons.

After integrating all Hotfixes etc, you can download Xpize and Vista Transformation Pack 5.5.

1) Run Xpize and patch your C:\XPCD\I386 folder.
2) Run VTP5.5 again patch C:\XPCD\I386 folder.

This is one of my favorite trick.

Otherwise, there's this nice addon from ricktendo64 : here

You just run it at the end, when all is integrated. It will ask you the location of the directory containing I386 folder, and that's it :)

Thank both. I used XPize before, didn't like it since whenever I tried uninstalling it, it had loads of leftovers (but this was about a year ago, so maybe it's changed, will give it a shot).

As far as Rick's thingy, I can just double-click on the /bat file/.cmd file file, just like a RunOnceEx, correct? I.E. download it, extract the .rar and double-click it at first boot, like I do with .Net 3 (don't ask me why but I'm too weary to try Runonce stuff... one day I'l get on that bike :lol: :wink: )

Thanks again guy/gal(?)

edit: derrf, I'm a genius... haha with Ricktendo's, do I run it before or after Driverpacks, or does it not make a difference? I always do Driverpacks last before burning, thanks!

Nice, but the French - English translation needs work. I can translate it if your interested.

I can tell you that Ricktendo's one is the doggs nutts! :wink:

I have just started using it, and with a couple of mods to it, it's amazing, especially if you use Ricktendo's Vista sidebar for XP as well! It's almost better looking than Vista!
