Win7 stucked in classic theme after doing sfc scannow. How to return?

Hello sir and ladies,
I am indeed in a really big need to solve this matter as I am going on a Trip tomorrow and rely on my laptop for my college works

So basically what I just did is that I was trying to solve my microSD card problem that Windows 7 kept asking to check and scan disk as if it is broken or somehow, but it was very normal to use.

So I tried to do in cmd, sfc /scannow and waited for a couple minutes then the Windows 7 asked me to reboot the laptop. So then I did.

But ..
Somehow my custom theme that I had been using with Universalthemepatcher, just won't load. Even the Windows Start is still using this old look.

What do I have to sir / ladies ?
Really really rely my lifes on you thanks

You need to repatch those files, sfc/scannow will unpatch them.

Or,

You can use this method Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7

which just installs a service and isn't affected by sfc scans.

System Restore
well yes i did create a restore point before - the thing is just that i had done a number changes in the system (installed programs and download some files in Gigabyte) which doesnt make sense if I had to restore the computer
But then I got to find this post
and just trying to re-patch the theme, reboot, changed the cursor, reboot, and finally changed the Windows Start icons.
so things are good now! thank you and sorry for making such a hectic situation (it happened at 3 AM, so yea .. )

will mark it solved and hope it could help the others

Yes sir - i did the same thing. It was a bit confusing in the first time because I read (somewhere in the forum) that says doing a sfc scannow will turn the theme back and everything will be normal. Then I tried and failed. And at that point I forgot the name and steps of how patching the custom theme because I patched mine like almost 3 years ago.

But no worry - aero theme is back and everything just went normal


Thank you everyone, do really appreciate the help
