Windows 7: Custom theme disappeared after Windows Update

Custom theme disappeared after Windows Update

Hey all, I've been having some trouble. Basically I had a custom theme installed (7Pro) using the Ux program first then adding it to my resources. However, after a Windows update last night the theme won't work. I've tried reinstalling and removing the update but to no avail! I'm pulling my hair out so any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

Try patching again with the patching program you used before. It's possible the update changed one of the patched system files. A Guy
