Windows 7: Restore point did not eliminate custom icons

Restore point did not eliminate custom icons

I tried out a custom theme yesterday and decided that it was too intrusive to my system overall. I had created a restore point to guard against this, but when I restored, I discovered there are still traces of the custom icon pack I installed using 7tsp on my desktop shortcuts as well as windows explorer. I can't get rid of them. Any ideas?

Welcome to Seven Forums marlboroman. Perhaps the easiest way would be to run the System File Checker. You'll have to repatch for 3rd party themes again after, and it will undo all your customizations.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
