I installed "Dropbox" to try and run android programs, but in the end gave up on it and uninstalled it. But now ALL my shortcuts and icons (internet explorer, my documents, skype etc etc) have all been replaced with Dropbox icons. How do I undo it/restore all icons to original program functionality?

If the icons are truly changed (the functionality also, rather than just their appearance) I would use system restore back to before you installed Dropbox.

 

Let us know how you go.
