    For the drivers remove the vidcard with device manager and let windows reboot so that it will find new hardware and then install the new drivers.

    About the folders, what's wrong with those beautiful win98 folders ;) , You can change them back to the original icons with the help of the program E-icons. You can find E-icons here.
