Windows 7: How do I change windows seven basic theme back to windows seven aero?

How do I change windows seven basic theme back to windows seven aero?

I was downloaded a program, and suddenly, in the corner of my task bar, it tells me: Your windows 7 theme has been changed to windows 7 basic (or something similar to that.) I've tried everything, looking through other threads and trying tutorials from other people. I can't seem to change it back to windows aero theme. Are there any solutions to change it without damaging my computer? Also, I wasn't running any programs at that time besides Skype. This has never happened to me before, and I just want to change it back.
