    "It's doing it's job, but can really mess up."

    July 9, 2010  |   By a344189

    Pros

    It's working.

    Cons

    Can mess up icons really bad after uninstalling.
    It not restors the system default icons.

    Summary

    It's doing it's job. Got really nice colours to choose from. It's really fast to customize folder icons.

    But it can really mess up system folder icons and default colour after uninstallation. Folders start behave strange, for example after double click on a folder it opens a Windows Search Companion instead of it's content, and colours can't be changed to their defaults. I recommend this solution to everyone that has that kind of problems after uninstalling this program:

    Choose TweakUI and Repair/Rebuild Icons option:
