Windows 7: Visual Style Window Trouble

Visual Style Window Trouble

I'm trying to use the visual theme 'Spot' for Windows7, but I'm having trouble. It looks like this on startup. When I switch the visual theme to a high contrast/basic theme like the Windows 2000 one, and then back to Spot, it works fine. Does this have something to do with Aero?

How do I get it to work on startup? I'm having this problem with many other themes too, eg. Chill, APPOWS, etc.

That's what it's supposed to look like. I think the differences are pretty obvious.

It would have been more obvious if you would've posted a screenshot of what it was supposed to look like and what you were getting instead of me doing all the work.
With that said fill in your system specs it would be more helpful to System Info - See Your System Specs
I downloaded and installed that theme and it worked fine for me being you said you have trouble with other themes doing the same thing you obviously have something else wrong try running Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have on your computer it will change any .dll you have changed back to the original and also if you use that universal theme patcher you'll have to re-patch your files again.
