I also find this icon replacement business very annoying. Use EXPLORER.EXE from inside NUSB and SHELL32.DLL from Q313829 to restore the original 98 Icons. You will also need to delete the "ShellIconCache" file from DOS or another OS after replacing these files.
Sadly, that's one of the many unofficial upgrades that replaces many system icons with Windows ME style. There's no option to preserve the Windows 98 look/feel. (Icons are replaced regardless of Windows 2000 theme checkbox.)

theres always gonna be someone who doesn't like something about it.
If someone want the original Win98 icons, you can install the SP and then replace the necessary files from the links below.

A new version has been released with original icons. Version 3.6 is what you might want.
Since Windows Update is no longer active for Win98, can someone help direct me to the most minimal upgrade / service pack available? I would like to get any updates that improve overall stability and compatibility of the OS, without changing the look/feel. If I wanted Windows ME icons, I'd install Windows ME, do you know what I mean?
