Nice WinXP Style Icons for Customizing Folders

For quite some time I had planned to set up my home machine from scratch; last weekend I finally bit the bullet and did it. One week later I'm still in the "add and tweak" phase (the days after a re-installation when you notice some tools/hotkeys/settings are missing), but things are on their way back to normal.

While configuring my system I played around with customizing folder icons in Windows Explorer ("Customize" tab on a folder's property dialog). Nice feature -- if you have icons matching the look of your system. Searching the web for folder icons I noticed that people seem to be obsessed with changing the look of their GUI completely, often to a point where I can only wonder whether these systems are used for any actual work...

If you're looking for some "Standard Windows XP" folder icons for typical document types, you should visit Foood's Icons. The folder icons can be downloaded on this page under "XP Folders (1,2,3, 4 & 5)".
