    System tray icons for W7 64

    So I decided that the next stage was to replace the system tray icons for my W7 64 bit build. Thanks again to Mr. Grim for the AWESOME/EPIC themes. Currently I am using the Blade theme and I love it. However, I cannot for the life of me get the system tray icons to change. I tried just replacing the .dll files in both system32 and sysWOW64 folders. I tried the Windows 7 tray icon changer program, still no luck. So I took ownership and opened the .dlls with resource hacker and saved the originals. Then I changed them in icofx and then replaced the "original" with the new ones. Still I am unable to get it to work. After a little while though the white ones appear. So I am completely stuck and was wondering if anyone had any ideas. If I can get it to work I will create some more icons for them. I only created the action center which is basically the same only dark, with a little bit fading, not just flat black. Any help would be appreciated, and thanks again!

    hi bud

    after you replace the icons in the dll or change them do you clean the icon cache in the os if you don't even after a reboot they will still be the same as windows caches the icons in memory

    here is a fix I made that will add the clear icons cache to your right click menu just follow the instructions inside its very simple that will solve your issue

    Sorry for the long time since responding. Nothing seems to have worked. I have tried multiple times and ways. I think that the easiest solution is just to not have them even show. Problem solved. I use rainmeter anyways so there really is no need to have them in the tray. If I do eventually find a way then I will be sure to post it. Thanks anyways though!
