Hello Himmcr, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could do a system restore using a restore point dated before you made this change to undo it and hopefully restore the icons back to default.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

At the same link above, you could do METHOD TWO to do a system restore at boot with your Windows 7 installation disc instead.

Maybe this helps ( Default File Type Associations - Restore ). It is a bit tedious though.
