    Read the content of the link linked to in the link I provided above.

    The author realizes this can be an issue.

    BTW, if you're on Win8 Developer Preview, why are you running Norton?

    Not really sure what you mean by me being on Win8 Developer preview....I'm on Win7, ie 9

    I tried again, and still, Norton is blocking and removing it, even after I click 'run' twice. ?

    Oh, this is a Win8 Forum so I assumed you were on Win8.

    Temporarily turn off Norton - the file is safe.

    Nope ...

    7 Taskbar Tweaker - RaMMicHaeL's home page

    EDIT!!!!!!!!!

    Just tried it on Win8 8102 with Win7 compatibility (won't even install without that) ... doesn't work at all.

    Sorry ... it worked in Win7.

    ie icons


    I tried several times to d/l the 'ah hah' site you found for me, and each time I get 'unable to connect' from IE

    Any other thoughts, or maybe another link that I can try clicking on?

    Thanks for your time, it is appreciated
