You could try doing that and see if it works.

Extract Files from Windows 7 Installation DVD

You may come across lock and permission issues. It's very particular about how you add or modify files into the system32 folder so make sure you follow the directions closely.

Was this issue occurring before you started downloading and installing different themes? What spurred your instruction to run SFC on your computer? What issues were you having and did they coincide with any other changes on your system?

I just uninstalled ASUS ROG Theme and voila:

So now I learned. Where do I get "proper" Windows 7 themes that would not corrupt explorer.exe?

There you go. Be rather careful when downloading and installing things like themes that modify many aspects of the system, to include ones you wouldn't think it could/did.

I only get my themes directly from Microsoft.

Windows 7 themes - Microsoft Windows

I don't trust any third party ones for reasons you have just realized.

Ok, lesson learned.

I think I know why that ASUS ROG theme makes Windows think that explorer.exe is corrupted. It modifies the start button to be the icon of ASUS ROG. So practically it doesn't actually corrupt explorer.exe, it only modifies it.

Kevin if you have other Asus preisntalled bloatware installed you can Clean Up Factory Bloatware to get a much leaner and better performing Win7 install.

Most tech enthusiasts Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

What were the problems which made you hesitate on the Repair Install? We can easily help you work through any of those as long as the Win7 is legal.

I don't have any ASUS bloatware installed. Have you read my reply that I already had the solution to the problem?

Yes, I was responding to an Asus theme you uninstalled which solved the problem. I could not know you had no other bloatware installed so was trying to help if you did.
