I was trying to change the icon on a shortcut exe. icon and it somehow changed all my icons to the same one! Only my windows icons are the same (my computer, my network, recycle bin etc.) and all my program exe. icons are the same! (only way to discern each program is by reading the name!!) How do I restore them to default? Or do I have to change each one individually? Thanks!

I do not think you can do it by one click now. You will have to go through the change icon process browse to the program files and change them manually. I am not sure if it would work but worth to try run this script.

LoL :) I always avoid system restore function since I don't really trust that feauture. And %90 of users do not have a restore point. I am glad you solved the problem.
