Windows 7: Theme Problem

Theme Problem





I am having a problem with my Theme personalization. The first image is my current option which lacks the installed theme section. The second image is how it is supposed to be. If I install a 3rd party theme it will go on top of "My Themes" This worked properly at one time and I do not know how to fix it.

I have all of the required tools installed such as Theme Research Changer, Uxtheme, and everything is patched. Any help would be appreciated.

Gary post a screenshot of C:\Windows\Resources\Themes so I can see all folders and files.

You don't have any custom themes in there Gary.
That's why there not showing up.

If I put one in there it will go on top of the "My themes" section and not in the installed themes section where it belongs.

I believe if you use one of the themes it goes into My Themes but I may be wrong .

In Personalization in Control Panel, there are four types of themes.

My Themes. Themes that you've customized, saved, or downloaded. Any time you make changes to a theme, the new settings appear here as an unsaved theme.

Aero Themes. Windows themes you can use to personalize your computer. All of the Aero themes include Aero glass effects, and many of them include a desktop background slide show. For more information about Aero, see What is the Aero desktop experience?

Installed Themes. Themes that were created by your computer manufacturer or other non-Microsoft providers.

Basic and High Contrast Themes. Themes that are designed to help improve your computer's performance or make items on your screen easier to see. The Basic and High Contrast themes don't include Aero glass effects.
