  1. Hi everybody :wave:. Thanku for all ur help so far and i hope u can help me on dis 1! well, I have win xp sp2 (AND VISTA!! DUAL BOOT!) and the icons seem to have messed up. Since I installed vtp7 (unistalled it) then installed brickopack vista, then uninstalled it, i can't change the icons back to normal xp icons again! :( Has anybody got any ideas on how to do this? Also, I have used loads of software to change icons but none seem to work and unfortunately when i installed the transformation pack i didn't make a backup file of shell32.dll file :dead:. Here's a thought: can you somehow post the shell32.dll file on the website so that i can download it?? if so PLZ do! thanku for any help in advance :D .

    Have you tried installing the file from your xp cd? You could also try the windows repair tool.

    Hi Cerberus. I'm glad you bothered to help me!! Unfortunately, i haven't got a xp cd as the xp OS was preinstalled when i got my laptop. Is there any other way or is there a tool I can download that can automatically do this for me? thnx for ur reply!
