Sorry about that guys, I haven't been around much lately...
I guess I should have looked more closely into the forum topics before posting this.
I've been busy doing a clean install of my OEM copies of W7U ($174 on the Egg) & installing all my programs.

I guess this is a post for those like me that hadn't seen this until now.

Where is "personalization", right click on desktop?

Sorry Yes it's under the right click on the desktop but I've just noticed that this will only allow you to remove any themes you have added yourself

If you want to delete the built in themes I think that would involve manually removing the Theme Folders from the system folders

Thanks, when I couldn't delete them, I thought some of the magic brownies I ate in the late 60s or early 70s had come back to haunt me.

Maybe I'll just leave well enough alone for now........

If you want to remove a theme manually, this is how you do it...
I'll see if I can make this as simple as possible...

1. In search type Folder Options & hit enter, then click the view tab in the window that comes up.
Uncheck the box that says hide protected operating system files.
(A warning will come up to ask if you really want to do this click yes & then click Apply)

2. Open the Windows folder & then open the Globalization folder
Next open the MCT folder & this is where all the themes are.

3. Delete the one you don't want & then re-hide the protected operating system folders again & you are done!
