My Google Play store, as well as all of my apps, are messed up. Every one of them has an Android icon and an SD card emblem at the bottom right. I do not know how to get my Play Store back, and I can not use any apps.

Can anyone help?

Talking of "getting it back": Is it gone? Did you try to clear it's cache and, maybe, uninstall its updates? (it would auto-update again then) – Izzy Feb 11 '13 at 7:27
I tried clearing its cache and its not gone, just like all of my other apps it has an android with a picture of a SD card... – Jesus McKApplebottems Feb 11 '13 at 17:28
If all of your apps are affected, and you don't find a better solution, a last resort is always a factory reset, though this would also delete all your data (so make sure you have a good backup). – Izzy Feb 11 '13 at 20:17
