Welcome to the Seven Forums
The themes at the 1st link has a lot of problems and not complete.
The 2nd is OK do this make sure both (1 Ubuntu folder and 1 Ubuntu.theme file) in screenshot.
-ubuntu.png

Are in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes
-themes.png

Then it should show up in Personalization as Windows 7 (The maker did not change the name in 1 place) click it and see if it changes.

Double click on the Ubuntu.theme file and see if it will apply it.

Have you used any custom theme yet?
Run this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
It will undo the system file patchs
Then you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Or

Go to

Task Manager > Services

And tell me if you see something called "Unsigned Themes"

If you don't then that means the patch is not running. Try restarting your computer and check again. If it still doesn't show up then reinstall it and restart again.
