Changing Disk Drive Icon at Windows XP

The classic local disk drive icon or any other plug&play disk icon can be changed with a little touch of one "autorun.inf" file and the icon available from local machine. Users might be get used to with autorun.inf files. Since, they are the root cause of trojans, viruses and other vulnerables comes from usb stick and plug&play hard disks.

Before

Make a new txt file and rename it to "autorun.inf" at the root directory of disk drive whose icon is intended to be changed. Then insert the below lines into it, and save the file. Change the property of this file to hidden (optional).

[autorun]
icon = .\myicon.ico

"icon = " must be followed by any file with full path on your local machine. e.g. "icon = C:\Program Files\NetBeans 6.8\bin\netbeans.exe" then the result is as follows.
