Windows 7: Big Problem

Big Problem

Hey guys, thought I'd jump on here and try to ask this in the best way I can.

A few months ago, I installed a custom Token Icon pack from DeviantArt. I also installed a custom start orb, shell, and theme. At the present moment I want to reset all these back to the basic windows 7 without loosing all my installed programs, files, etc. by doing a system backup.

Is there any way to do this?

This is one way. Maybe someone will have a simple way other than this.

Try doing a RESTORE back to where it was working when you didn't have Token Icon pack.

Well, doing a restore would remove a ton of software that I would really like to keep. I don't know if that's an option at this point.

Also, my system didn't come with a Windows 7 disk. I don't know why dell didn't send one.

That's not what I want to do. I want to keep all the software that I've installed, but just remove the icon pack, extra themes, and start button I've changed.

You can normally restore the Aero theme of your choice by rightclicking the Desktop>Personalize>Choose Aero theme.

If that won't work then the mods need purging by SFC if the modder didn't provide an uninstaller.

You can manually remove themes from C:\Windows\Resources\Themes also.
