Try this
Icon Cache - Rebuild

So that I know that I am giving the best advice that I know how, it may be best not to tamper with cosmetics, as it usually results in bigger problems.

Hello Jony, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if running a sfc /scannow command may be able to help if the system files were modified to change the icons.

If not, then you could do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before you made these changes to undo them.

Hope this helps,
