    Now I did it.. I loaded what I thought would help, "tweakui", I didn't like it, so I unloaded it. Now my control panel won't let me get my icons back. I only get the generic sheets. Can anyone help me out, I've tried all the views, I'm sure thats not it. Thanks. Silverado.....

    Have you tried a system restore from before you did the install or uninstall?

    I found a menu in the Tweakui that rebuilds the icons, I got my icons back. I took a chance, I thought I was going to loose everything, but I got my icons back in the control panel. Thought I would let you know. Silverado over and out.
