if you know how the menu-file is named and where it is place (could not look for it, because I have not installed the Trimble-options) you could look for a file that has the same name like the menu, but the extension MNR.

To get the name of the menu you could look into the command _MENULOAD or with _CUI (and partial menues). They are normally placed in the directory (for Win7):

C:\Users\<YourUserName>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\C3D 2012\deu\Support

If you found the MNR-file:

  • close AutoCAD/Civil3D
  • rename the MNR-file to any other extions or move it to another directory (so for Civil it look like erased, but for you it's saved)
  • start AutoCAD/Civil3D ==> this file will be generated when Civil loads the drawing ... and so the icons are refreshed (hopefully)

If that does not help the second chance will be:

  • log in to your windows with another user-account
  • start Civil3D ==> look if the icons are ok
  • if so, look within this user-directory, search for these menu-files (in this user-directory),
  • copy the CUIX and MNR to a temporary directory
  • log out and log in with you original user-account
  • copy the CUIX and MNR from the temp-folder to your user-directory
