Uxtheme patch loops login screen

I recently tried to install some custom themes and no matter what software I used to patch the system files I would get the same result. Once I reboot the windows login screen will loop saying please wait... I have tried leaving the computer on for a hour but It was still looping

If someone could help me fix this problem I'd appreciate it alot

Do you have a backup we can restore from?

Do you have a win 7 dvd to do a repair install?

Boot into safe mode and try a system restore.

I used safe mode to unpatch the files and then rebooted and which solved it but I still can't get themes working :\

I would run this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
to fix anything that needs to be fixed.

Then follow this tutorial to enable custom themes,
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7 making sure you disable UAC before installing UxStyle Core.

It looks like you just need to add some wallpapers to it, maybe you can explain a little more. And can you post a link to the theme your trying to use so we can try and see if there's something else we can help you out with.

Sorry for the late reply I've been out and asleep. Well the theme I'm trying to apply is by DJ Gx Zune QuickPlay for Win7

I've followed all the instruction Gx posts in the readme and i tried to do it again using the method posted above but it still didn't work. As I apply it my theme switches to the basic one.

Looks like it's working for me, I didn't change the explorer but here's a couple screenshots from mine. Maybe post a question to the creator of that theme in the link you gave me above.
