Well I was going through some stuff in TweakUI, and when I finished and went into my start menu, I noticed my icons are messed up. Now, when I was in TweakUI, the only thing I did concerning icons was repair my music, video and pictures icon. Here are some pics to show what I mean.

Here's an update: I tried to do a System Restore to see if that would get rid of the problem. Well, the System Restore started and the computer started to shut off, on the logon screen (when it's turning off) it gets to the point where it says "Saving your settings..." and it like freezes there. The computer will not finish shutting down, and it keeps that message. I waited for 30 mins. and it still didn't shut off, so I manually shut the computer off. When I log back on, it says System Restore was not completed because of an improper shutdown. What can I do, I need help.

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Start the System Restore Utility at a command prompt

1. Restart your computer, and keep tapping F8 during the initial start-up until you get options, select Safe Mode with a Command Prompt then press enter.

2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.

3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Look for the most recent system checkpoint created before the errors to restore from
