    <This may sound like a silly question but have you tried using the 'change
    icon' in the folders 'Properties tab'? If not right-click the file/folder you
    want to change the icon for. Then select the 'Properties' option, which is
    generally at or near the bottom of the list of options. Then in either the
    General, Customize or shortcut tab if it is a link to your music folder
    select the change icon button. a window will pop up with selection of Shell
    icons for you to select, alternatively click the browse button to search your
    PC's files. If in the properties window under the General tab the box 'Read
    Only' is highlighted you will not be able to make any changes to this
    file/folder. You must first clear the 'read only' box. You may also need to
    edit your permissions for this file, you do this under the properties -
    Security tab. Hopefully you won't have to go through all the editing
    permissions stuff, it was all abit of hit-n-miss & a lot of pot-luck for me.
    Now i ill try to solve any problems anyway possible before i resort to
    messing with the permission of ANYTHING!! on my laptop.
    *!!* GOOD LUCK *!!*
