Geoff Duncan praises CDIconKiller in TidBITS #287.
We think CDIconKiller is so important that we include it on our CD every month.

Suppose you want the extension to be inactive (show all icons) except when you hold down the Command (cloverleaf) key. Open the 'cdev' resource with ResEdit (Open Using Hex Editor) and change "6632" to "6732" and "6624" to "6724".
The full source code is included for your convenience.
Original work by Quinn and Peter N Lewis.
And if you just want to suppress custom icons on your hard disk, try Folder Icon Cleaner.
To work around this:
In the German System Software (the one Rahul Sen Gupta is using) the Launcher is dubbed Klickstarter; General Controls is Allgemeine Einstellungen.
Update: James Prescott reports that this workaround is also required for Silver Volumes (part of the Silverlining formatting software).
CDIconKiller used to support slow devices such as floppies and networked disks, but I removed this feature since it could permanently (instead of temporarily) turn off the custom icons. CDIconKiller would disable custom icons on writable devices permanently, that is, it would turn off the custom icon attribute bit. Unfortunately, the technique used by CDIconKiller was devised with a read-only device in mind.
My Folder Icon Cleaner utility can fix this problem if occurring on folders.
