Maybe you did a video driver update via winupdate?
Or perhaps you have altered your display refresh settings?

Yes I did the video driver update via winupdate.

How to change the display of my icons from blurr to original state?

Bad news; never use winupdate for drivers, you obtain drivers, if required
from either your PC manu. if a large OEM eg Dell/Hp or Laptop. Otherwise
from the hw manu.site.
You need to obtain the correct drivers

Open Device Manager, navigate to the display adapter, then r-click it
and pick properties, then driver, and then pick "Rollback". (See Device
Manager in Windows Help and Support)

I installed the display drivers from my manf and restarted the PC

I tried deleting shelliconcache file in c:/winnt and restarted the PC

None of the above worked.

I am able to see images at perfect resolution but every icon in my OS has
become awkward.

Screen resolution is not changed.

Any procedure to play with the windows to get back the icons to original
state?

Is this a laptop? If so do you have Cleartype? Perhaps Display
Properties, Apperance, Effects? (That's where it is in XP, I don't have
2000 laptop to check)

I haven't seen a problem like this before. I suspect that something in
the OS specific to icons has gotten corrupted. A repair install might be the
only practical way of fixing it.

Good luck with a "repair install," assuming you mean a W2K CD repair
install.
I'd wait before trying that, since you'll probably have massive Win
Updates, and other updates.

If the only problem is blurred icons, wait and look for more solutions.
I assume you've checked Display Props> Visual effects>, as well as >
Appearance>.

This problem I had with sonic cine-player, it change settings on
program-start. disabled (no need for them, come with roxio 7.5), and problem
was gone.
