Exclamation "Unfortunately, Settings has stopped" message after loading modded setting APK

I tried to black out some things per this guide:
How to Black Out System Apps on Your Samsung Galaxy S5 for Better Battery Life Samsung Galaxy S5

It involves replacing some original apk's with some modded black themed ones. I was stupid and didn't back up any of the original apk's. It was all for nothing as nothing got blacked out and the original apk's stuck, however, I can no longer access my settings. I get the "Unfortunately, Settings has stopped." message every time I attempt to open the setting menu.

What should I do to fix this? I looked for the original SecSettings.apk for our phone to try and reverse what I had done and I could not find it online. Would this fix the problem? If so where can I find this? If not, what can I do?

Help would be greatly appreciated.
