Hello,

You could do a system restore using a restore point dated before you did this to undo it.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Just did that... But didn't help..
I did saw that using my guest account.. These "strange" icons don't exist there...
Also.. Should I remove my current account and make a new one? Because I saw I had a lot of folders and stuff that were being used before I did system restore but these are no longer used...
Or just reinstall all the missing programs?
I don't really know all that stuff

Yes, you could create a new administrator account from within your current user account. Next, log in to the new account and copy all of the contents of the old user account's C:\Users\(user-name) folders (including hidden AppData folder) into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) folder. After everything checks out ok, you can delete the old user account while logged in the new user account.

But because I only have this on my current user account and not on the other.. Will copying the appData folder make the strange icons on the other user as well?


I decided to remove all the app's that weren't in the start menu on the other account and put all documents, pictures, movies and music folders on my external HDD.
Then I'm going to unplug the external HDD driver, remove my current account from a new created administrator account and then create a new one with the same name
(it's because I would like to keep my current username, but I can't (obviously) create a new account with a name that's already been used I hope it will go fine )

Just in advance.. If I reinstall the programs.. And the problem comes back.. What should I do?
Because System Restore didn't help but creating a new account did..
Until now everything is going fine and I am copying my documents and folders back
