When you took that screen shot, did you have "show hidden files and folders" enabled?

Yes, I did, I renamed the Autorun icon in my Intel10.3 folder to xAutorun, that didn't work, i took a screenshot.

putting a x infront of the autorun didn't seem to do much

I still do not understand at all why you have not deleted that autorun.inf.

Well...... First off, you said it doesn't matter as it's not in the C:/ folder...it's in the C:/ Intel folder........then you said you can just rename it, which i did and no difference. Plus i don't even know if it's .inf

Yes, I noticed you have chosen to hide known file extensions. This can be dangerous sometimes. If you right click on the file and choose "properties" the full filename should be visible.

Here's the picture.......... http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/7499/untitledhx9.jpg

Also, I tried renaming it without deleting and that took no effect, also this isn't in the C:/ Folder, it's in the C:/ Intel folder. I did post a picture of the C:/ Folder earlier.

Please stay with me and thank you!

Also contrex, when I open the autorun file in my Intel folder, it says "INI file not found" not .inf, INI file.

Have you tried Drive Icon Changer, which seems to be freeware?

I downloaded and installed the software, but I had to take a screenshot of something because I didn't know what to write in.

I have C:/ written in at the top as you see, but I don't know what to put in the 2 things at the bottom, their circled.

other imageshack links are working fine at my location, but that one gets a "server not found" screen.

I hope you can see this!

The icons which Windows XP normally uses for disk drives etc are contained in a file called shell32.dll which is located in the C:\Windows\System32 folder. The normal icon for hard disk drives is number 8 in the file.

In this picture icon 0 (zero) is highlighted



Icon numbers:

0  4  8
1  5
2  6
3  7





You need to click the "create" button and then refresh My Computer by clicking the titlebar once and pressing the F5 key.

The result of choosing icon 8 for my C drive is as you see here
