Windows 7: Windows 7 Almost all corrupt icons

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Windows 7 Almost all corrupt icons

Hello, this is my first time on the forums sorry if this is the wrong spot or if there are other ones on this specific topic.

Anyway let me get to the point, months ago I installed a skin pack from SkinPack - Customize Your Digital World | SkinPack, IconPack And Theme For Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 I believe the name was HUD Red. About two months later I uninstalled the pack but to still have the icons from the pack. So then I resorted to getting an Icon Changer which was a complete mistake because now that I have used the Icon Changer I know for a fact I don't have my original Icons. Now they are corrupt. I do have a Windows 7 Home Premium CD that I picked up from a Computer Shop in August of 2015, I did about thirty minutes ago put it in and go through the repair options, but at this point I am out of options that I can think of. If anyone out there has a solution to this I would appreciate your help, Thank You.
