    I use CandyBar to change Mac icons however the applications Sparrow, iPhoto, and iMovie have a lock and I can't seem to change it. Anyone know how?

    It doesn't work. I tried setting permission to Read & Write but I still can't change the icons. I tried setting 'Wheel' to Read and Write as well. There has got to be a way because I've seen many user-created icons for the Sparrow and iPhoto apps.

    I'm not sure what else to try. I know I could never get it to work when I used CandyBar. Since 10.8 I stopped using it.

    Locked Icons on CandyBar

    Ok I think I changed something while I was playing with the settings because now when I log out, I get two options, to either log in as user or guest. How do I remove the Guest login?

    Go to System Preferences --> Users & Groups and turn off the Guest account.

    Do you happen to have bought those apps from the App Store?

    Yes, Sparrow is from the App Store. iPhoto and iMovie as you already know came pre-installed.

    Candybar does't support changing App store icons. Although you can do it manually.

    How do I do that?

    ----------

    I installed LiteIcon but I didn't know how to use it.
