Question About the SHELL32.DLL File

Hay All!...

ok, a while ago, i found out that i could change the themes in XP by downloading this patch. I've had Xp Looking like a Mac, and have some very Groovy themes to go with it. I also have some rather colourful Bootloaders, and Login screens to go with it...

But after a while, i noticed, that some of my computers icons have changed, and i seem unable to change them back. Even when i change to other themes, these icons stay the same. My assuption is that one of these themes has changed something, so now, all my little yellow folders, are now blue, my Drive icons, are Blue and look like a Floppy disk Logo.

I want to get my old icons back, but don't want to lose the rest of the theme, such as the task bar ech...

Is it just a case of downloading the SHELL32.DLL and replacing the old one with it?

Or is it a little hard!?

Cheers all!....
