Do you mean you want to replace the IE icon with one that shows google?

I'm guessing that's the problem... I've gotten a lot of emails about this.

The first thing you need to do is make sure you are showing the classic icons, or you can download a google icon and swap out the current one with the google one.

Alot of sites have free icons to download. Try deviantart.com. When you find one just right click select properties and change icon then select your google one.

Zig, I have not tried this program but offer this quote from Amanda (wife) "it's much better than IconPackager."

She prefers 'vertically challenged' :O

Now if we can get Elis812 to post back, she'll make him a cool Google icon.
