    Hey basically my ZIP folder icon, JPEG icon, GIF icon etc have all changed to really old looking icons. What I think it was is I installed this Alienware Theme thing to get an awesome Alienware theme. However, not realising it was for XP, it made Vista act strangely and when I installed it, it said reverting to old theme but it never did. I believe it set the theme back to Windows 98 or 2000. Heres a printscreen of the changed icons. Not really a problem just I'd prefer the real icons that look ALOT better.Thanks!

    I'd run a system restore.

    Strangely enough I tried that already but there are no restore points (This is a fresh hard drive)

    If it's "that" fresh, then, a format and reinstall would be the easiest way.
