Doesn't Seem to work

i have looked over the forums
and followed every direction to a tee....
but for some reason the themes i download and stuff don't work.
my windows look either goes to classic or the text is a different color..
you probably get this alot and what not from noobs
but a nice direction towards some related fixes or some would be great
thanks for your time
