Beefing Up Vista’s Shell32.dll

author alang

Atomicfuel, a WinMatrix forum user has posted a thread containing a modded version of shell32.dll.

Shell32.dll contains the icons that Windows Vista uses, and Atomicfuel has included his own set of icons to replace Vista’s default.

“I decided that I didn’t like vista rtm’s shell32.dll file. Is microsoft so lazy that they can’t do away with the old windows 3.1 icons?”

Users must be careful, as they are modifying core files in Vista.

LOL such an unprofessional point of view :)))

this MOD of shell32.dll is great and maybe someone will use it, BUT whatta hell is he talking about? I mean the Win 3.1. icons, doesn’t he know that they are for completibility with old apps?
He thinks that his file is better then original one? :d lol
