All those icons are buried in the SHELL32.dll file.

You can open the dll in Resource Hacker (http://download.cnet.com/Resource-Hacker/3000-2352_4-10178587.html) and extract all the icons from there.

I followed your advice and downloaded it- but it is not very user friendly....  are you familiar with it?

After I open the SHELL32.dll file in Resource Hacker- how do I pull and save the icons?
