I installed a World of Warcraft theme earlier today. Along with the theme it installed Theme Manager. I didnt like the theme so I changed back to the Windows classic theme, by right clicking and selecting properties, some of the icons were still the ones from the custom theme. Then I uninstalled Theme Manager, as well as windowsblinds that I had installed a while back. Then I had to restart the computer. When it booted back up soem of the icons are still the ones that were on the World of Warcraft theme. I've tryed changing themes again, restarting again, but the custom icons wont go away... what should i do?

right click DESKTOP, choose PROPERTIES, choose DESKTOP tab, choose CUSTOMIZE DESKTOP button

Select each icon and choose DEFAULT ICON

the folder icons, they look like a backpack, and when you click start, lots of the icons look like little swords... and there are lots of others too, like internet looks different.. and email, the ones from the start menu

it appears the easy way would be to reinstall the theme manager and choose RESTORE THE ORIGINAL WINDOWS XP theme
