not sure what you might have done to stop it, maybe some 3rd party program.
I just changed the folder icon for my epson folder to a printer, and it changed instantly.
the folder is located in the boot drive as a sub folder to "C". firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks Mike, this is also the same in XP where I had no probs. Out of
curiosity, I tried changing the icon in any case. Had absolutely no effect! I
can't understand why there is absolutley nothing in the Folder Pictures
section, there should surely be at leaast an icon showing what Vista thinks
the current folder should look like, as in XP. Many of my folders, most of
which are on separate drives to that to which Vista is (or XP was) installed,
show the folder pictures correctly, but there is no difference either in the
folders themselves, or in the customize-folder options tab, between those
that show correctly and those that don't.
