You can't change any icons or you can't change certain icons...like My Computer, Recycle Bin, etc.?

If it's all icons, I'd try deleting the "iconcache" file and rebooting. Windows will build a new iconcache which might solve the problem.

If it's only specific icons, some can be changed in Display Properties>Desktop tab.

what i cant change is the explorer file-manager icons, like the folders and drives and stuff. i've always used a program called iphile to do it, but now it no longer works. i changed my desktop shell to litestep, but i don't see how it would effect the file manager. plus i've used programs like icon packager and they don't work either.
