    Installed a custom icon pack, can't restore to the default

    I installed a custom icon pack (numix iPack), decided I didn't like it and uninstalled it however it left all of the icons still there. I have tried using sfc /scannow to repair them but it says I can't find anything to repair despite the installer even saying that it modifies system files (imageres.dll for a start).
    How can I repair the system files and get the default icons back?

    What might work is's Windows Repair (All in One) -- I think it still has a checkbox for icon fixing or re-association.
