Windows 7: Can't get back to original theme

Can't get back to original theme

I installed the Static 2.0 metro theme, and even if I delete it from the personalization menu, my icons are still what the theme changed them too. How do I change them back to the original windows seven theme?

This is the theme btw: Static + Static Polished + Static Mango by ~snipes2 on deviantART

do a sfc scan that will revert the icons back.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Thanks, and that changed my logon screen back to normal, but not the icons.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

You might try Icon Cache - Rebuild
If that doesn't work use this icon pack Win7 defalt iconpack installer by ~cutechinu on deviantART it has worked for others in the past, you may also have to rebuild the icon cache again after doing this.
