I hope it's not too much of a faux pas to add to such an old topic, but since this came up as a top result in a Google search for info on editing my Windows 7 icons I decided to go ahead and do so.

I wanted to change the same "unknown file" icon type, and didn't feel comfortable mucking about in my registry so I did some searching and found a walkthrough and an application that worked very nicely for me!

(Found via Microsoft Support)

And also, here is a link to the CNet page for the utility used.

For my icon, I recolored the mobi/azw icon to a lovely green close to that of the official epub logo. A nifty Photoshop plugin came in handy in saving the .ico filetype.
