    Is there any way we can change the global setting (if there is one, which apparently there is) for the preview icon for .EXE files? I have many .EXE files I have to copy to/from windows PC's, and each one has this ugly corrupted looking snow look in finder. It's not a problem, so much as an annoyance.

    I can change the icon on a per file basis with a new icon, but not in general for all .EXE files that it finds.

    Is this possible?

    Thanks!

    This is what it looks like in finder...

    Notice I can adjust the icon as needed per file, but still OS X makes an association only for those that I adjust, not for all .exe files preview images.

    I think you can do it with Panic's CandyBar. The weird thing is the icon shouldn't look like that, under 10.4.11 it's just a blank white document icon. This may have changed under 10.5 or 10.6 but I doubt that is what it is supposed to look like.
