    off to "never ever" land
    :evil: :evil: :evil:
    SEARCHHHHHH
    its "I-L-L-E-G-A-L"
    UNLESS u ar an official BETA tester !!!
    :evil: :evil: :evil:


    technoteen actually i think thats modified the shell32.dll etc system files ..
    there has to be an "undo" option
    since its a transformation pack
    it MUST've backed up ur older files ...
    and THERE MUST be an "undo" option
    usually in a .BAT format
    atleast its like this in MAC OS transformation pack
    search in the directory u installed it in ..
    or just search for "shell32.dll"
    see where all they are
    if its anywhere except ur i386 folder and system32 folder and dllcache folder .. itsur old file ..
    ull know this my modified date and size ( it will be different)
    that folder will contain ur other backed up files as well
    so u can use those

    alternatively and simply put u can just insert ud winxp cd and use the sfc /scannow command from start menu=> run

    It was WINDOWS X's LOnghorn Transformation Pack... given with DIGIT DVD... lemme first say I hate it... 'coz it's uninstaller build by him doesn't restore **original** system files... also it doesn't create backup while installing it...

    Hmmm... the reason why your **default** XP Icons are there is 'coz during installation LHTPack patched lot of DLL, CPL and EXE Files in system,direcories e.g. %SystemRoot% and \system32...

    Windows Default icons are located here in this DLL file %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.DLL

    Which is patched by LHTPack... now to get this file back... you can do this... assuming you're on XPSP2...

    Start Wndows in Safe Mode... > CTRL+ALT+DEL... and terminate EXPLORER.EXE ... and now from Task manager browse here %SystemRoot%\ServicePackFiles\i386 > Locate following files here...

    SHELL21.DLL
    moricons.dll
    mydocs.dll


    some EXE (except logonui.exe and winlogon.exe 'coz they may create problem and delay boot anfd login time) & CPL Files you know who's icons are changed due to LHTPack...

    And paste them all to \system32


    Restart...

    This sould solve your problem...
    ____________________________________________________________

    If this fails then Software Soultion : Download shareware versions of Axialis IconWorkshop (for creating and editing) and Tune-up WinStyler (folr modifying) and Microangelo 5.5 (for creating and modyfying) change allmost every icon in Windows XP....

    Hey, Its simple to get back thoese icons, all u need to do is right click on your desktop and choose properties, now switch to Settings Tab and there in the Colour dropdown list change from 32bit to 16bit, your screen will go blank for a moment and will comeback now u can see that the icons has been restored, now go back and change it from 16bit to 32bit. If this doesnot solve your problem delete the file IconCache (search for it ) and restart windows, windows will recreate this file automatically.
