  1. DLL Files containing icons


    I'm rebuilding my Win10 desktop after recovering from a failure to boot. I've used GOOGLE to obtain a list of DLL files that hold icons. They're located in the "system32" folder, along with HUNDREDS of other DLL files that DON'T hold icons, and whose names make no sense whatever (the names of the icon-containing DLL's also make no sense whatever).


    You'd think that common sense would require a unique folder (like "Icon Holders") into which the icon-containing DLL's would be held. But common sense doesn't seem to be relevant here. I've tried creating the folder I envision(in the "system32" folder and putting copies of the icon-holding files into it. But when I go into the "change icon" procedure and browse to one of the relevant DLL files, I get a message informing me that the file in question contains no icons.



    This is simply insane; why does this happen? putting a copy of a file into another folder should not change it.

    :)

  2. *.dll files associated with other file in Windows7

    Yes the icon. No instability noticed at all, however I still can't get my "gadgets" to work, and they have a .dll file.

    Are you talking about the icon for .dll files?

    They are usually tied to a specific executable through the registry... have you been tweeking your system, or noticed any instability lately, pointing to memory or HDD data corruption?
