    I replaced some and now want the originals, any ideas where I can get them? I just want to change back my iCal Icon because there are problems with it (when it displays the date once opened, original icon disappears etc).

    How did you replace it in the first place?

    The more you "mess" with your system, the more likely you're going to "break" it. If you used CandyBar they have a restore option. If this was a manual change of application icon you should have backed up the originals. Other than that, I'm not sure. Maybe use Pacifist to dig down into your install CD?

    this is a good question. I replaced mine with the method apple gives. open up the get info window of the icon, and CMD+V the icon of choice in. But now, I too have lost my original icons (including iCal as well!)

    I thought with most apps you can just get info, click the icon and press delete?

    That should delete the custom icon and restore the original..right?

    If you replaced your icons with the method apple gives (Cmd + V the icon in), then you can go back to your originals in a similar way. get info of the app you want to switch back, click once on the icon to select it (just like the replacing method), but this time, hit Cmd + X, and it'll will go back to the original
