Original icons look horrible

Those icons are from an out-dated version of osCommerce and as far as I know, there never was any alternatives, most just removed them from the code or replaced them with their own.

I am not a coder, so dont bother sending PMs asking for help as you wont get any.
OSC has a steep learning curve, but in general the program does work. If it doesnt work, the chances are it is something you have done.

If you want to get rid of these icons, you're going to have to do some detective work. When you see an offending icon, right click on it and get its name. Then you search your PHP source for that name. You may only find it as a define name (e.g., ICON_SOMETHING) and then you have to search for that name. This should bring you to the PHP code that outputs the the icon, at which point you can figure out what to comment out. Note that some icons might be in CSS as background images, which would require changes to .css files.
N.B.: if you simply omit icons (no <img> output), you may also be getting rid of some links, so be careful about whether they're simply "decorative", or they're links too (need to be replaced by either a better icon or by text). Also, removing icons may change on-screen element sizes (if they were using icons to expand sizes), which may produce undesirable results. I would suggest commenting out icons one at a time, so you can fix up the resulting screen appearance more easily.
Hey site admins... the current demo appears to be 2.3.1, but the link to it still says 2.2 MS2!!!!!!

Delete the icons and then set "require images" to false in your admin area.
