Windows 7: Can't change back to Windows 7 Theme.

Can't change back to Windows 7 Theme.

Ok!!! After the huge problem with the virus/malware which cost me about a week to solve, I am now facing a new minor but distructing problem. My windows randomly changed to "Classic Theme". I am saying "Classic Theme" because although it is set to Windows 7 Basic Theme I get a Classic-Like theme. (The taskbar, the buttons and the windows I open are not what Windows 7 Basic Theme gives). I am also getting some error messages like "Windows Explorer has stop working" etc etc... I am really fed of the multiple bugs I get for almost a month now... Is there any way to solve this or I have to make the desicion and finaly reinstall my windows? :P

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Personally if I was in your situation especially after dealing with a virus or malware I would do a clean install. I would backup all your data (documents, music, videos, pictures etc.) to an external hard drive go to your manufactures website and download the drivers that you will need so you are prepared for the reinstall.
Here is an excellent tutorial that will help you Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
