Can't Change Back to Default Windows 7 Icons from another Themes Icons

Hello, when i first got my compute i installed a custom theme changing basically evrything about my computer and its apearence on the desktop. This includes the icons as well. When i tried to revert back to the original windows 7 icons it seems that this theme (which is third party I should mention has changed their icons to the default ones) has made the their icons the default. I was wondering if their is a way to get the original windows 7 icons back.
Thanks

Welcome to the Seven Forums

1st try
Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have. You may need to do this up to 3 times with a reboot after each scan.

If that did not work try this cutechinu's deviantART gallery it should put back your icons, be sure to Icon Cache - Rebuild again after the icon pack.
