    Ive bought a used MBP and all the icons (for the HDD, trash etc.) are different and have an odd silvery look.

    How do I change them back to the Apple default?

    Thanks.

    I'd recommend doing a fresh OS install to make it all as new.

    A second-hand computer is one thing. But a second-hand and fiddled with OS is another.

    candy bar has an option that will restore the icons to default I think
    not sure if it works with icons changed by something else though

    Fresh install and start from scratch. I hope you got the restore discs when you bought it..

    Do a fresh install, for all you know the system is infested with trojans and keyloggers.
