I was messing around with some themes I found at a web site, and they changed my "My Computer", "My Documents", "Network Places", and "Recycle Bin" Icons to some weird black and white image. Anyways unlike other icons which are just shortcuts on the desktop I can't just right click these and change them, anyone know how I can change them back?

I am guessing you have XP. If so, right click on the desktop, choose Properties, go to the Desktop tab, press the customise desktop button, highlight the icon that you wish to change from the small display in the box, press change icon, and choose the replacement you want.
Or change the theme.
(or as Terryxp suggests, use system restore)
:)
