To add to what booh said, what "trial icon thing" did you install. If you want the original icons back uninstall it at run this to reset your system files - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
It looks like your using a custom theme also so you will need to re run the theme patcher after running the scan

edit - unless the icons are a part of the theme of course

its best to avoid iconpackager ,it seems to lead to issues

the best /easiest way to change icons ,folders etc is to use 7tsp,

7 Theme Source Patcher

then find a 7tsp pack that you like or one that matches the theme you already have.

What was the result of the SFC /SCANNOW. It may need to be run up to 3 times until it reports "no integrity violations".
As Booh said icon packager does nothing but cause issues. Do you have any backups/system images to revert back to before you installed it. You could first try a system restore to before you had these issues.
