Hello Hto005

Firstly run this - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker That should replace any corrupt system files and put the original .dlls back.(you may need to run a couple of times depending on the errors,run until it comes back clean)

Than you will need to rebuild your icon cache - Icon Cache - Rebuild

What is the reason you cannot do this. At the end of the day you have little choice if you want the default icons back.

FYI-That theme/icon pack will have changed icons in more than just the imageres.dll which is likely why you still have custom icons showing

Do you have the windows cd or recovery disk.If so try running the sfc /scannow from an administrative command prompt in the recovery console - SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot
It would appear you have more than just icon issues.

After doing what Danny said to do if it does not work most likely you're going to have to do Repair Install
I opened up that icon pack and I can see a minimum of 130 .dll .exe .cpl in their that have been changed.
If the repair install does not work then you will have to do a fresh install.

Sorry to hear that was your only option in the end.Next time you try to alter system files make sure you have back ups.Reduces the pain if something goes wrong -
Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
System Restore Point - Create
