Windows 7: Having trouble restoring all my folder icons back to default

Having trouble restoring all my folder icons back to default

Ok so I've been fooling around with my icons these past few days. I changed some of them manually by simply going through the customize tab and others changed by using iconpackager from Stardock. However today I found an icon package I liked so I tried to apply the entire thing. Most icons changed but a few of them remained as they were before (ciment was the type I was using). I tried restoring all icons to the windows default through iconpackager and manually, and while most of them changed, again those select few retained the ciment icon look. I have this sick feeling that I somehow replaced the default folders for those select few even though I have no idea how I could have done that.

I just want to start fresh now, right back from the start. Is there a simple way to do this?

Hello Nikosawolfie,

You could do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before you made these changes to undo them all.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Some user had the same issue awhile back. I recommend the method below to restore back Win 7's default icons.

Very strange but I tried this and it didn't seem to have any problems during installation but no changes were made to any of my icons. No idea why.

I also resorted to a system restore but no luck there since I didn't want to restore too far back.

I guess I'll try my luck with the suggestions made by the first poster.
