System restore only works if you happen to created a restore point , other wise you can't restore to a earlier point ... Sixfoot_2 you could try out this program from microsoft it might help , not really sure as to whether it will or wouldn't but its worth trying it out and also to just have use for , its call tweakUI from microsoft , look at the right side of the screen , you have to scroll down a bit , but do download this program , it has a option to repair icons , give it a go

yeah, the tutorial didnt help much because EVERYTHING is in wingdings, and i cant tell which file is which except from the picture on the icons, but there is a way to do this from the run menu, if anybody could tell me how it would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. i know quite alot about computers, but windows xp is not one of my greatest fields, but if anybody need web programming help or general windows help, i will try to help others, such as they are trying to help me

Is this what you are asking for ?? This here below can be excuted from the Run command

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

Or you can perform this here below

1. Restart your computer, and then press F8 during the initial startup to start your computer in Safe Mode with a command prompt.

For additional information about the Safe mode with a command prompt, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
315222 A description of the Safe mode boot options in Windows XP
2. Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials.
3. Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
4. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.
