Hello Deon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you applied the theme may be able to fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I'm not sure what you mean by "will build any cause to my laptop?". Could you explain more?

You would not want to do a "Factory Restore", but only a "system restore" as outlined in the link posted above.

Can you show us the screenshot of the system restore points ? You may need to restore to 3-4 points back, preferably restoring to a point where an auto restore point was created during Windows update, obviously which is in turn much before installing your theme.

Say:

Restore point 1: xyz software installed.

Restore point 2: You theme was installed; you made an manual restore point and trying up to this.

Restore point 3: Auto Restore point for Windows update KB 123

Restore point 4: Auto Restore point for Windows update KB 456 <<< Restore to this point or more back.

Got the point?

Run a sfc scan. That'll also remove any other customizations you may have done.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Run it 3-4 times.
