    If it's the icons for setups, you can change the icon in Folder options>File Types.
    Scroll down to and select MSI, click Advanced>Change icon.
    Browse to the location of the file with the icon you want.
    The normal default icon is in C:\Windows\System 32\msiexec.exe.
    Select the icon and OK out of all windows.
