How can you get the correct boxart and game info from games installed in steam like L4D or even COD WAW2 to display art instead of the steam logo in game browser under 7?

I know Lost planet showed up their and its a steam game but not half life2 or other games.

You could try this.

As far as I know it will work under 7 also.

Other methods involve a good deal of work.

Personally, I just can't be bothered with the frustration.

Yep. I was able to put my Steam icons into Games Explorer in Vista no problem, and it would keep the game icon and I was happy. Now it defaults to Steam icon in 7 and it is ugly, so I just turned off the Games Explorer and launch all games through Steam.
