Ok im going to the desktop, right click and go to personalize. Then I just click on a windows theme and nothing happens except that the taskbar changes color. The background stays exactly the same as before.

I'm with ryo. do SFC /SCANNOW in an elevated command prompt (right click and run as admin).

Wait a second, when you open 'personalize' from the right click menu on the desktop, and it opens the personalization options, try clicking on 'desktop background' at the bottom. Then try to select a different one and click 'ok'.
