    So I was using Flyakite OSX 3 for about a month and finally decided to uninstall it as my computer got kinda slow with it. It replaced all the icons from my computer to the OSX ones.

    And now when I uninstalled it, they're gone. Like for example, I can't see the icon for Mozilla Thunderbird and no icons for .jpeg file extension. Is there a way to reset all this?

    TweakUI has an option to rebuild icons, which resets system icons (under Repair). Not quite sure about Mozilla though.

    I just did the rebuild icons in TweakUI. Still the same. :\

    You could try running the System File Checker.

    Start>Run>cmd
    sfc /scannow

    It'll probably also restore your patched uxtheme.dll file to the original one, so make sure you keep a backup of that (it's in \WINDOWS\system32) before you run the command or you'll be stuck with Luna and Windows Classic. :)
