Adding Icons to System32/url.dll
Is there any way to add another icon or 2 to this dll file?
System32/url.dll

(Using other icons for Internet Shortcuts foul up IE6 as a strtup item)



Thanks

You'll find it much easier to simply create your own icon files.
Instructions (and software) are all over the web. And you'll have those
icons forever. Edit them whenever you want.

The problem is, for some reason, that IE will not auto-start on bootup
unless I use an icon in that DLL file!

Re: Adding Icons to System32/url.dll
An icon is only an graphic, nothing more. An icon has no ability to
start a program. You can start a program with no icon at all (i.e., with
the Windows generic icon.)

Navigate to this executable:

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

Right-click on the icon for iexplore.exe and drag it to the desktop.
When releasing the mouse button, choose Create Shortcuts Here from the
context menu. Now drag the shortcut onto your Start menu and drop it in
the Startup folder. IE will start every time you start Windows.

Use IcoFX to create and modify icon files and "Resource Hacker"
to add, remove or replace the icons in a file. Be aware that an
icon needs to be the same size and colour depth as the one you're
replacing. You can edit icons with IcoFX. These are the best tools
for the job.
