    When you open up candybar it sections the icons general/folders/dock etc. what you do is drag and drop the icon you want used over the icon to be replaced then click apply system icons.

    So you find the icons you want and then use the procedure you describe? That sounds almost too easy .. but then we're talking about a mac ... it just works!

    BTW, will changing folders still act "animated" after you change them? If so guess I'm getting CandyBar. That DL is just a trial, right? You have to pay $12.95 for the real thing? Or is that more of a donation?

    You have to pay 12.95 to use it after 15 days or 25 icon changes.

    has the trial expired for candybar? It doesn't relaunch the dock or anything?

    Did you restart after you changed it? Sometimes you may also need to clear some caches (Onyx or Cocktail can do this for you).

    I've never had an issue using CandyBar to change the Finder icon.
