Is is possible to change the icon that appears in the About Box in Adium 1.3.2?

Yes, but why would you want to? Do you really look at the about box that much?

I have a MacBook icon, and would like to put it in the about box, even though I do not look at it much?. Can you please tell me the file to edit?

Okay. Just realize that every time Adium updates, it reverts to it's standard icon. You have to select the Adium application icon in your applications folder, right click, show package contents, go into the resources folder, replace the Adium.icns file with what you want (you must name this file Adium.icns so the file type must be icns unless you change the plist which i don't recommend).

I have done that, but the about box still has the green icon.

Then you either need to change the plist or it's done through code.
