I use Customizer God to change a lot of icons, but some of them, instead of using the 16 x 16 version of that .ico file I replaced the original with, windows decides to use the biggest icon of the .ico file, which is 48 x 48 or 32 x 32 (I'm not sure if it uses the 32 x 32 one if the .ico file has both), and downscales it and it looks like garbage. For example, this happens with one of the icons.
This is the 48 x 48 icon of "My Computer"
its 16 x 16 size is this one:
The thing is that's not the icon that appears when it's shown in the taskbar and windows title bar This is how it's shown. I made a capture with Snipping Tool and edited it to remove the background:
It looks like crap
What actually makes me mad is the fact that when using any program like windows Explorer, all the icons are shown as they should inside the program. I have no idea why this is happening and it'd be great to solve it.

Saint Jimmy: hayafumi Not quite, as you'd end up having to replace many a component to get it to function (Explorer is fairly deeply ingrained in Windows's internals), at which point you may as well install 2000 and call it a day.

meow: I have made a tutorial on how to get centered title text in windows 7! It’s in the visual styles section.
