Give Folder Colorizer a try out and see if you start to look upon Explorer with a fresh set of eyes. Just remember to make sure that the folders you want to color are not read-only; otherwise this won't work. To check, right-click on the folder, choose "properties ", and in the "general " tab, look at the "attributes " section. The Read-Only box is there--just make sure it's unchecked and once that's done, you'll be ready to give the folder a fresh coat of paint.
