Windows 7: IconPackager Messed Up My Icons

IconPackager Messed Up My Icons

I installed IP to change my icons with the IconPackager Mac Icon Pack so that the icons and folders would look like the Mac Icons. Then i decided "That was stupid I should just change it back" so i did, well almost. Everything went back to normal except for one thing. Some of the folder icons STILL look like a mac some look like something in between and some look like the default windows 7 folder icons. The only problem icons are the folder ones. Everything else is normal. I have tried to download IP and change it back to the Default icons but it wouldn't let me since i only used the trial version which is long expired. I have tried to rebuild the IconCache. no luck there. I have tried the command which scans the system files to see if i have any. Nothing changed. I have restarted my computer after each try. Still no luck. I have no idea what to do next.

I have personally never use this so I'm not too sure what the error is, but I know several people that have used it with success.

Did you turn off the User Account Control first?
User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings
Be sure to note where your setting is at so you can return it there afterwards, after moving the slider down you will need to restart your PC for it to take effect.

You could also ask the creator a question he may be able to help.

Worked great! I did not have to rebuild the icon cache though. When I ran the .bat file it said that the icon cache had already been dealt with.
