How do i completely get rid of my old 3rd party themepack?

hi i had an alienware red themepack i downloaded from a youtube video that was an all in one (it patched everything in the themepack without having to download a bunch of stuff) but i got bored of it and decided to download the iso apple/mac theme from the theme section of this forum. its perfect and looks amazing but i cant get rid of the old icons from the alienware theme and i also cant get rid of the stupid aalienware dock from stardock that automatically downloaded from the original thempack too it really sticks out against the mac theme and im stuck on how to get rid!

its mainly the my computer icons etc, the back and forwards button on folders such as my computer, downloads, my docs and the battery icon and sound button are still bright red.

the start orb was stuck on the red alien face too but i managed to get rid of it by using startorbz to pick one to match the new theme

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have. If you have used the Universal Theme Patcher you will have to patch it again as this scan will repair those patched files also your start button may go back to the default.

For the dock use this tutorial and try to uninstall it Programs and Features - Uninstall or Change a Program

Click on the start button and then go to all programs then go to your Startup folder and look in there to see if there is anything for the dock in their.
