I recently installed and uninstalled a theme which after uninstalling changed all icons to a notepad with some word inside.? How can i get the back to their original states…I?m sure your reply can help me..Thank You!!
One of the most annoying nuances of changing system settings is how it seems like you can never revert back to them!? As we all tweak our machines to our personal preferences, sometimes the settings we choose do not appeal to our taste but going back to our original state can sometimes be much harder then getting there.? Try to restore your system to an earlier point using these steps and you should be back to your original state!
**Warning?doing a system restore will restore your machine to an earlier point in time, (a day or two is what we will set it back to) but it will REMOVE any settings/downloaded files/modified files/new files?etc.? Back up anything you would like to save from the past couple days BEFORE restoring your machine**
As stated, we are going to try a system restore on your machine.? A system restore will put your machine back a couple days to a point where it created an image of what the settings/files were at that given time period.? It?s like a little time machine on your computer but things such as the date will auto correct itself!
First, back up any of the files you want to save that you have created or modified within the last couple of days (this goes for programs you might?ve installed as well).? Next, proceed with a system restore.
(Steps from Microsoft)
1.? Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.? On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.? On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you’d like to restore to.? (In your specific case, I would recommend a day or two to salvage as much data possible but still restoring to a point earlier from when you modified your settings)
4. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5. Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6. The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you’ll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.
After you complete your restore and reboot, you can browse around on your machine to make sure everything is in order.? If by some reason you need to undo your restore, you can utilize the Undo my last restoration function in the system restore welcome page you navigated to before.
