Read the first post in this thread, there you'll find the instructions:

You MUST restart after installing/un-installing, The scripts will ask you
when they have finished their work.
Please restart ASAP after running, the scripts shutdown some services and
the only way to guarantee all is running again is to restart the system.

RE-INSTALLATION
---------------
The files can ONLY be installed then removed once without running the util
in the 'Data' folder called 'UninstallCleanup.cmd'.. this is a safety feature
to prevent the original files (once backed-up) being over-wrote.

Instruction are included for installing another icon pack, but basically all you need to do uninstall the black one first then delete the backup files (imageres.dll.bak and shell32.dll.bak) from system32 and also SysWOW64 if your using x64.

When searching the folders for the backup dll's the best way to locate them is to sort the folder by size and then they will both be near the top of the list.

Looks like you beat me to it, you can do that too but I still do everything the manual way.

OK guys not too long now and I should have these icons ready for you, anyway this is the finished set I will be using, the drive icons are the same from the black set with slight changes.

Nice....I know this will sound like a chore Mr. GRiM but could we possibly get this icon set sans the Ultimate writing on the folders? Otherwise this is an impressive set thanks as always for sharing

Thanks guys, I might do this set with Gold on them as well and I could also do it without the ultimate text as well if you really want them, I am also going to upload these on Deviant Art as well if anyone wants them individually.
