    You might try moving ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist to your Desktop (where ~ denotes your Home folder) and then entering

    Code:
    killall Finder
    in Terminal.

    Yes, a reboot is the next thing I would try.

    You don't want to reboot? Why?

    It's been awhile since I've seen one of these "I messed with my Icons and now I have problems" threads. I had begun to think people have learned from the mistakes of others. Guess not.

    Must be some folks out there who have used Candybar with no ill effects. Oh well...
