i dl'ed and installed this... it didnt do much..
changed some icons, backgrounds, etc. nothing great. the sidebar didnt work for me.
so, i figure, eh, not worth it.. i'll uninstall it. that goes seemingly well, cept now my Luna theme (the standard XP theme) has vanished.
so, my work pc has a fubared GUI. i shouldnt be complaining, the install gave plenty of warning that it may screw shit up. i just wanted to let anyone else know that i had problems with it.

I uninstalled the LTP but it didnt uninstall properly and the Longhorn icons still remain. I have tried system restore but that didnt work either. How can I restore my previous (or even the XP default) configuration?

Have you tried resetting themes via Display Properties > Themes.

Resetting the the theme from Display Properties > Themes to 'Windows XP' or 'Windows Classic' doesn't help.
Maybe the LTP overwrote the icons in the default theme packs also.
Edit - Reinstalled LTP, didnt let it install the new icons, then uninstalled LTP, then system restored to 5 days ago.
Now its fine.

Its working for me. The first time I tried, it failed but I succeded in the second time. The Automatic installation for some reason dosen't work. Anyways here's how I did it.
1. First I booted into Normal mode and unloaded all running programs like Antivirus, printing software, etc.
2. Then I ran LTP and chose Manual Transformation mode instead of Automatic Transformation mode.
3. Then the usual things happened and it asked me to restart my computer. I didn't restart it, instead went to C:\LTF and ran apply.bat. It patched my computer and a file protection dialog popped up. I clicked on Cancel and restarted my computer.
4. Voila I had MS Longhorne...
Here are some screenshots for you to envy
