Need more information.
What do you mean small pictures? In Explorer list view mode those icon is at 16x16 pixel icon. Not just picture. The icons files contain various graphics files size from 16x16 up to 256x256 pixel. You will need Icon maker apps like Icondeveloper to make icons file. Of course, most good Icon maker apps could auto create those icon sizes from a single graphics. But to get the best result, you will need to adjust every single size of that icons. That is why making Icons set is not a very simple things to do.
In below s/shot. Its taken from Windows 7, and applied Treetog's Junior Icon set. As you can see the mp3 files is applied but if I open up list of .flac those icons will show default icon since in that package .flac is not listed. You will need manually add it. Similar issues with video files. There are a lot of video files type that might not be listed. That is why some those audio and video files just get default icons.
Hope that answer your questions.

Last week my hard disk failed and had to replace it with a new one and had a fresh Win 7 ultimate x64 reinstalled just like the old disk. Everything worked fine on that one.
The music an video Icons will not change as I had set them in IP. In list mode all I get is the default win icon.

Only mp3 is not showing correctly
Change it as below
You will need to help yourself and try to get involved with it. I can't help you if you just said "Nope". Could you explain more.
Sorry. The only Icon that did not change is the mp3 for music.
What media player you have installed in your system? Specially installed for playing mp3.
And you should also try the following:
-For 7 Users: click Start, in the start search field type 'cmd'. Right-click on the search result and select 'Run as administrator'.
-Type: sfc /scannow
-Wait for the scan to complete (this can take several minutes)
Some help on how this looks should you need it:
The above command should assist with replacing any damaged or problematic system files. Please note, however, since it may require restoring certain files, this process can take some time and you will need to be patient until it has completed.
Please let me know whether this resolves your problem or if you have any additional questions.
Media player I use is GoldWave636. Had no problem with old drive but had it replaced. Had to reinstall Win 7 Ultimate x64 same as old drive. Also had to reinstall all programs I used before.
I will do as you said an let you know what happens. Thanks.
I ran sfc /scannow. Music icon didn't change.

I have been using IP for many years and am not new on how yo change icons in IP. Been a member forever. Evert other icon changes for me but .mp3, music and pdf adobe. Even my .wav file changes, Been using Win 7 for years as well as Most Stardock products.
Like I said, my C drive failed last week and I replaced it with a new drive and reinstalled Win 7 Ultimate, same as last drive. Have reinstalled everything I need to use on it. Shouldn't things work the same way?
Never had a problem with WindowBlinds, FX, CursorFx, etc. I'm just frustrated. Sorry to be a pain.

You have had a series of issues with other products (DS is another) of ours since this happened. Did you to a fresh install of Win7 or a restore from a backup? Is it just our apps you are having trouble with or are there others?
