How can I change my Wondows 7 icons/folders back to default?

Hello,

I tried a icon re-placer and didn't like it but after uninstalling it seems to have removed my default icons. How can I get them back to default?

Here are some photos as examples:



Thank You for Helping.

Hello C4L1D3N and welcome

Firstly run this up to 3 times or until it returns no errors and reboot between runs - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Then run this - Icon Cache - Rebuild

If that doesn't solve the issue you may consider restoring your system to before you installed the icon changer - System Restore
