    I have some file types that their icons are exec icon or empty page icon or anything random... These types of files are for example .nfo files or .srt. Is there a way to set a certain icon that I want for these types of files?

    An icon for all .nfo files and another icon for .srt files etc...

    Can somebody help me? I'm searching for a solution for ages...

    Check out Candybar. I'm not sure if they're SL ready, cause I don't use it anymore, but it used to be the tool you're looking for.

    Yes, Candybar is ready for SL.

    But a file's icon is determined by the application that opens it, and you have to modify the icon resources for that app. If the app doesn't already provide an icon for your document type, I'm not sure if it can be modified to do so (QuickTime Player can have MKV icons by using a script related to Perian, but that may be a special case).
