Hi jim63,

'Thank you how do I do that. I have Vista'

Turn off User Account Control.

Go to Control Panel, double click User Accounts.

Click on 'Turn User Account Control on of off'

Untick 'Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.

Click O.K. Button.

Hi jim63,

UAC is a protection device in Vista so if you wish to stay safe dont forget to turn it back on again once you have changed your Icons.
