Windows 7: Problems with ownership for custom themes

Problems with ownership for custom themes

I'm trying to install a custom theme, but while almost everything will change, the forward and back explorer buttons remain the same.

When I try to transfer the Shell, Explorer and timedate files, the computer rejects them and gives me the "You need Permission to perform this action". I took ownership of the Windows Files, I checked, and made sure I took ownership of all the little files, but it still won't change.

I have UxStyles installed as well. Only half of the theme refuses to install.
