Have you ever installed Stardock Iconpackager or alienware or something similar I con changing program ?

Icon cache will not be rebuild in that situation . The easiest solution is Repair Install , without losing your documents and settings .

I installed the Stardock thing a while back. Is there anyway to get my icons back to normal from that?

And no I do not have a virus

You installed iconpackager .... and uninstalled it with an icon set different from the default was in use, right ?

If my guess is true, there is only three ways to fix it .

1. Clean Install Windows 7 .... so you will loss all your documents and settings . If you are planning for it, back things up first .

2. Repair Install .... the easiest way .... just follow the tutorial .

3. Readjusting imageres.dll using some resource modifying program such as resource hacker . But for that you are to know first which icons throughout your system is corrupted ; and you need the appropriate icons to replace those .

If you attach some screenshots of your my computer window, folder icon , file icons etc, I wil try to guide you through the third option, but repair install is easier than it .
