Do you have a key to install Ultimate with? Your Home Basic key will not work.

the steps that youve given about the scannow command that youve given.
skinpacks replace the system resources/files with the skinpacks ones[not positive]
so the command wont detect the the skin as a corrupt theme.

You can ask specific themes and customizations questions from the top experts at that in our Customization forum. They would also know how to avoid damaging or repairing system files.

You are asking how to run a Repair Install on corrupt Home Basic using an ISO file?

The needed ISO is provided in the tutorial in the blue link. However with Basic you need to first download another version, then unlock all versions by running the eicfg removal tool on the ISO, burn to DVD using ImgBurn or write to bootable flash stick using UltraISO Software To Create Bootable USB Flash Drive, so you have a bootable installer for Repair Install or if you need to Clean Reinstall or do Startup Repairs.

To upgrade to Ultimate you'll need an Ultimate key, rather expensive if you don't need one of the few extra features in Ultimate. Otherwise it is the exact same OS and upgrading will not fix performance issues in Basic unless you Clean Install it.
