Hello Hassnain,

You could do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before you installed this theme to undo it.

If that's not an option, then you might see if running a sfc /scannow command may be able to restore any modified system files back to default to hopefully fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You might also do this since they are for the system icons in the notification area.
