Hello OptimusOne

Try this - Icon Cache - Rebuild

Depending on which icons you have replaced you may also need to change them in the imageres.dll too

A lot of icons are in imageres.dll as Danny said but not all of them, if you post a few screenshots of the ones you want changed we can most likely help you.

Looking at that theme I can see the creator did not provide a imageres.dll with those icons in it that is where you will find all of them. Do you have the icons you want to use there?
