My computer looks like a mac

I downloaded a mac os x skin pack. After i had uninstalled it, some elements were still there (see pictures) so i wonder if i should do a repair cd or if i have to get a new computer. The model is Hp Pavilion P6-2056sc

Hello and welcome to Seven Forums,

Please run the sfc /scannow checker to check and repair important system files that will have been modified when applying the theme. Follow option two in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hmmmm, can you try running it from boot: SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot Not sure if it will make any difference but it might.

EDIT - Don't bother with that. I've had a better idea. Do you have a system restore point to go back to? If so restore back to it and try sfc /scannow again. If it doesn't work, uninstall the theme using Revo Uninstaller: http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_..._download.html
