Why not just use IconPackager or Reshack/Microangelo whatever dll files it is Vista's using for shell icons? Or, just wait till the KDE on Windows Project ports it.

your question is a bit misleading..

*.msc files are just so called snap-ins for the Microsoft Management Console ( MMC.exe , introduced widely in Windows 2000, although mmc is also available for Win 9x ), a universal application which can contain as many snap-ins as one likes to have, whenever your mmc contains what you want to have in it, you simply save the result as example.msc.

Each time you launch directly a *.msc by the run command, you really start mmc.exe which then loads the snap-ins defined in the msc file.

So you ask how to "hack" ?

As I told you, you can author any predefined msc by just launching the empty MMC.exe and then load the mscs, and tinker with the content, if that is what you call hacking ...

If you just ask for the icons - they reside typically in shell32.dll,explorer.exe,mmc.exe and the usual locations, nothing special.
