Windows 7: custom theme balls up

custom theme balls up

Hi all,

Can somebody please help me out here.I have tried following the tutorial on how to enable custom themes without modifying system files.
Firstly i disabled the user account control.I then installed UxStyle Core Beta.everything went ok. So i rebooted and enabled user account control again.
I then downloaded a theme called cyborgs by razorsedge. Which said that i would need 2 install "theme resource changer" and this would stop me needing to edit any settings.
I did this but this is where i got a bit confused. In the instructions to "theme resource changer" it said to put these 3 folders in my theme folder."explorer.exe" "explorerframe.dll" "Shell32.dll". But wen i went to do this. The folders were already there. So i moved on to install the theme. i extracted the theme to C;/windows/resources/themes.
I then went to select the theme in the personalise folder. The theme was'nt showing up in there.
I tried to apply the theme the C;/windows/resources/themes, folder but it just changed my theme 2 a basic 1.
I thought it may not b working because i had installed the resource changer program. So i uninstalled it.
Now i just want to know how to get my system back to how it was b4 i started.
Can i just do a system restore to get thing's back to normal?
I am at a total loss now. I should'nt ofrealy tried it in the first place really.
I'm not having any problems. I would just like to put things back to how they were.

any help will be GREATLY APRECIATED. Thank you in advance.
i have team viewer installed if that helps at all.


Am i right in thinking i can just do a sytem restore as no system files have been changed? Or did they get changed wen i installed the theme resource changer?
I'm not totally in the dark when it comes to pc's. I usually manage ok. I just lost track with this as i was skipping to and from another tutorial.

Sorry 4 the way my post was orinally set out and i hope this has helped.

Hiya!
No i havent tried another theme. It's not the theme that is the prob lol. Thats down to me n no sleep. Among other things lol. Your xp theme does look nice tho.

i just want 2 know. If i do a system restore. will my pc go bk to how it was b4 i installed UxStyle Core Beta?Or do i need to do sfc/ scannow? As i am not sure what it is that it actually did. i know it makes the pc think that the 3 files r patched. Restore or will that cause problems? i would think it the best option myself but i may be wrong.. Thats why im here lol

Otherwise it's all honkey dorey. we will see lol. time 4 me 2 go 2 bed. knackered and got 2 be up in 5hrs. thanks 4 ur opinion
