    Hi, I use candybar to change my mac icons. Currently I use the flurry icon set which I love but the problem is when applications update (all the time in chrome's case) the icons reset to default.
    I have to open candybar, drag the icons to the application again and in most cases restart for it to take effect. This is a very annoying work around.
    Is there a simple application to refresh icons for certain programs or all. Google chrome is the main offender as I don't mind updating the others on a less regular basis.

    Cheers for any help.

    No, unfortunately not. I gave up on that because of that problem. The only workaround I know of is to create aliases to your apps and then give those the custom icons. It's not perfect, but it will keep your icons through updates.
