[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\A]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\A\\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\\\windows\\\\Resources\\\\Icons\\\\A.ico"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\C]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\C\\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\\\windows\\\\Resources\\\\Icons\\\\C.ico"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\D]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\D\\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\\\windows\\\\Resources\\\\Icons\\\\D.ico"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\E]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\E\\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\\\windows\\\\Resources\\\\Icons\\\\cd.ico"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\F]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\F\\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\\\windows\\\\Resources\\\\Icons\\\\F.ico"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\G]
@="C:\\\\windows\\\\Resources\\\\Icons\\\\G.ico"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\DriveIcons\\G\\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\\\windows\\\\Resources\\\\Icons\\\\G.ico"


;Folder Icon
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\Shell Icons]
"3"="C:\\\\WINDOWS\\\\Resources\\\\Icons\\\\Folder.ico"
I found this at another forum, and it's about the same code as yours, and I've also tried to combine it.
Nothing works =/

As I said, is it because of Home Edition or is my computer just hating me? <3

Sorry Jey, I had to look in my threads to find it again...

To answer your question, I don't know if it works with XP Home, it should but Home lacks a few things compared to XP so it is not impossible that it won't. I assumed it would but it has only been confirmed to work in XP Pro 32-bit and Vista 64-bit.

Note: if you are using this in XP Pro x64, XP Home or Vista x32, please let me know so I can update the first post so others know if it works on their OS or not. Thanks.

Hi again.
It did work, after a while, I don't know how but it was pretty much "just-like-that"
I read somewhere that you sometimes have to restore icon-cashe, but I don't know how to do that.
Just so you know, it DOES work on XP Home Edition and I'm trying again on a new computer(also XP Home) to see if it'll work again.
