Great news. You're most welcome.
Shell Icons is missing for me in the registry for some reason and I cannot carry out the changes you illustrate. Any idea why its missing and how I could proceed? I just reinstalled windows 10 and nearly all my files and folders have the blue compression arrows. Driving me insane. Thanks
Hi, I followed the steps, using the transparent.ico downloaded from here, but my icon appears as black. Any ideas on how to resolve this? I have already unblocked the file and saved it in System32 folder.
(The ico file only appears transparent instead of black when not in small view)

As a test, restart the computer to see if that may help.
Still black icons.. I noticed my computer seem to display icons that are mostly transparent as black when they are in small view mode. I think I would rather go back to the blue arrows then stay with black squares sigh.
As a test, do you still have the black icons when using any other different icon than the transparent.ico? Perhaps one from imageres.dll or shell32.dll as a test.
