So I like to customize windows, by using themes, icons etc to match up with my desktop and what have you.
I decided to tr out Iconpackager since I figured that would make things easier than having to change all my icons by hand, which wouldn't even work half the time anyway.
Anyways, seemed to work alright at first, but some time later something went awry and I somehow had a conglomeration of icons from all the themes included scattered about my system. So after countless hours trying to fix it, I ended up uninstalling it.
Oh but things are never that easy.
It ended replacing all my desktop icons with the 4-colored shield, along with my startmenu and taskbar icons.
I'd go to the properties for my programs, figuring I'll just have to restore the icons myself by hand, but no such luck, even after I change the icon, which now for some reason tells me I need to be an admin to do, which it never asked me before. It does nothing.
Not to mention it really messed around with how my folders behave...
I would do a system restore, but I don't have any that go far back enough to when I didn't have Iconpackager.
So now I'm wondering, is there anyway I can somehow reverse this without losing my programs and work?
Rebuilding the icon cache has done absolutely nothing, and all that sfc /scannow does is remove my custom themes, which are easy no to re-install thank god.
EDIT: Oh right, when I open a program, the icon on the taskbar is a shield as well, but if I pin it to the taskbar, then unpin it, it somehow displays the normal icon as it should, until I close the program as when I open it again, it shows the shield still.
