Just curious.  Why do you need to prevent the user from changing the icon?  Is there some security exploit that employs icons?

Subject: [Py2exe-users] how to use icon in my application incorporated in exe?



I would like to incorporate png and icon file into exe and then use it during program run (to show it in about dialog and system tray). How can I do it?

For example now I use self.staticon.set_from_file(os.path.join(module_path(), "icon.ico")) but I would like to prevent user from changeing this icon. Thanks


I found this http://www.py2exe.org/index.cgi/CustomIcons but it is for wx.
