    Hi Guys,

    I really need your help with this one. I was changing all of my folder icons and for some strange reason the Downloads icon will not change and now wont even appear. Please see attached screenshot.

    I have done the following to try and fix this problem:

    1. Used LiteIcon and Candybar but both weren't able to fix the problem.

    2. I went to /system/Library/coresevices/coretypes.bundle/contents/resources and the correct downloads icon does appear. It just wont appear in the Finder Window.

    3. I have rebooted, logged in and even did a system cache clear and still nothing.

    4. Tried to change it manually with the Command I and copy and paste with changing permissions. Nothing worked.

    Can someone please tell me how to fix this problem.

    I don't understand this obsession with changing icons. Sounds like people with too much time on their hands to me. Oh well.

    I bet they'd all come back to factory defaults (oh no!) if you did an Archive & Install of the OS.


    Hey, you did this to yourself...

    (Thought I'd just get that out of the way.)
