To open the program, click its icon to the left mouse button.Enter the following text: [autorun], and the next line - ICON = ikonki.ico name.Accordingly, instead of the text "The name of the icon" enter the name of the earlier file.Click the menu item "File» & gt;"Save As" in the "File Name" enter the autorun.inf and click "Save".Copy icon and autorun.inf in the root of the disk whose image you want to change.Restart your computer and enjoy the new picture.
