There is IconPackager from Stardock, which seems to be a good tool and I see many people using it. But it's not freeware. But I think you can't do much wrong with it.

I've used IconTweaker which is freeware and does almost the same job as the program above.

The only problem for me is, that it doesn't work well with Litestep :(

I'm only talking of Windows XP, as I'm on this OS. For other OS I don't know if these programs are working or if there are other (simpler) ways to do that.

And one more thing:
The windows icons are .ico-files, no .png. So if you want to change them, you would have to use .ico-files too. As said before, I'm talking about XP, I don't know how it's on Vista or 7.

Hope I could help a bit ...

I use IconPackager and ObjectDock Plus. But if it's desktop icons you want to use, can't you use Rocketdock which is free?
