Have you tried right clicking on the existing icon and choosing properties> change icon?

do one thing, use software like tune up utilities which has a wide range of icon customization... not only icons but you has various other options including customization in boot image, visual style etc... contact me if you are a first time user of tune up utilities and i will provide you the tutorial....

Hi and sorry took so long to respond (long week end Holiday here-so away)
Thanks for your suggestion
it prompted me to explore and run display options tool in an installed "tune Up utility' Advanced System Care
Ran it restarted and Presto -selected Icon appeared
Thanks for your interest and help This was a no big deal thing ,more of an annoyance but it was great and re assuring to know that people like you are prepared to help Much appreciated

\Whilst you are here -- I have another annoyance
Some time back I started Getting "About Blank Page " when I Clicked on My internet home page (using Mozilla - but same issue when I go to I. E.)
Tried almost all of suggestions I found on line -no fix yet Currently using a Bookmarks link on desk top to go straight to Home Page There is a view that this is some sort of low end Trojan -but my spy ware /anti virus has not picked anything up

Any thoughts

JP
