Windows 7: Can't log in after modding .msstyles

The difftool.exe said the only difference is all the image files are renamed. The pattern is consistent too. All the image filenames numbers have to be deducted by 9492 to be back to normal.

Is there an automated way to rename them? I've already renamed all the image "folders" in Resourcehack with a script but that was only half of the differences listed in differences.txt. The other ones I can't access with resource hacker.

Help me out here. You see how independent I am, I don't ask for handholding. I just need to know what to work on.

Once is corrupted it's corrupt cannot be repaired or fixed.

I have no idea all I know is once the .msstyles fails to work right it's unfix-able.

Don't know if i should make a new thread,as i have exactly the same problem.
Inspired by what mr.Bongo did with my Windows 8 theme i bought Ave's Style Builder and tried to do the same on my girlfriend's pc.
I messed around a bit and found what images i need to edit in order to get what i want,and when i finished and applied the theme it looked ok.But,same as BlueBonnet,when i restarted pc i couldn't log back in.
I now know that my theme is corrupted but so i tried again(following mr.Bongo's advice in this thread) but i failed again.I'm a bit pissed 'cuz i can't figure out what i'm doing wrong.Any idea what i'm doing wrong?

Welcome to the Seven Forums

You should have started a new thread.
But post your .msstyles and I will look at it.

You have 2 SIZINGMARGINS:MARGINS at Toolbars, Headers and Rebar > Rebar > NavBar > Basic > Max > Active > Background remove the second 1.

I just checked the default aero.msstyles and it does contain 2 sizing margins are not sure why so that is not the problem.

When you are editing the .msstyles do you have it in the folder with the Shell folder and en-US folder (your country will have a different name)?

After editing and saving are you applying the thing through Personalization?
