I see shell32.dll, and wmploc.dll, I found pifmgr.dll

What are the best dll files for a varied choice of desktop icons?

shell32.dll is the best one I think.

If you want some OLD SCHOOL icons which are pretty cool in light of today's icons, look in MORICONS.DLL.  That DLL has been hanging around for 15 years!

I searched windows\system32 dll files, and came up with some good ones:
shell32 (mentioned by Wikkard)
wmploc
pifmgr
moricons (mentioned by cuziyq)
nvcpl
xpsp2res
wpdshext

I sorted the search results (*.dll) by size, looked at the largest ones.

Anyone know of dll icon files elsewhere?
