    I deleted the Utilities folder (not the utilities themselves) but decided i wanted it back. When i restored it, the folder was just the basic folder icon, not the nifty Utilities icon. I've looked around the past few days and I can't find a replacement icon, even resorting to candybar and whatnot. Who wants to help me undo what is wrong? I realize its not that big of a deal, but its kinda bugging me.

    I uploaded mine :) I know it looks blurry, but just drag it to the desktop, press CMD+I with the Utilities folder, and copy the image to the icon thing there.

    If I'm not mistaken this is in the CoreServices? Doing a "Show package contents" and just flip through it and you'll find all the stock icons.

    Thanks for the help, guys, but no success yet. Psycho's pic shows up as just a generic .Gif image when i use it as an icon, and I don't know where or what CoreServices is. It didn't come up in spotlight. Any other ideas or help?

    Open it in Preview, select the first image (CMD+A) and then copy.

    Look in your coretypesbundle in your core services. The icon is there.

    Where is that? Spotlight doesn't come up with coretypesbundle or core services. Sorry if I'm being a pain.:)

    \System\Library\CoreServices\

    Then find CoreTypes.Bundle right click and "Show Contents"

    \Contents\Resources\

    10.5 Spotlight does not search system files by default.
