Actually I have a feeling he half-read a tutorial and replaced XP's visual style manually.

There are tons of apple-styled themes out there, though - I have at least 5-6 installed on WB, and I had a lot more on StyleXP.

If you uninstall Fly a Kite via add/remove programs it should take everything off. It says it will do that in the license you agree to when installing it, IIRC.

This is exactly why the only good UI is the Windows Classic (windows 2000) UI.

Then you didn't do it right.
I installed it a while back, then thought it was sh!t.
Uninstalled it and all went back to normal.

Now you might be looking at a reinstall.

Then maby your just screwed?
What about system restore? Though I doubt that would affect the icons and sh!t.

Try this:
Right Click Desktop-> Properties->Appearance tab->
Now choose WinXP style?

You try that?
