What's happened to my Comp ? Can't use Windows Explorer

What i did is installing the theme Aero Diamond by Alkhan at deviantart and after i installed it , my computer's completely dump . I can't open "my computer" or "my picture" or "my documents" . Even open a folder on my desktop . I can't even change the theme .
When i left-clicked and choose personalize . Nothing happened . Even when i downloaded another theme from deviantart and opened it with WinRar , double clicked to install and there's still nothing happened .

The cause was most likely the theme has overwritten the shell32.dll with an older incompatible version.
