Make sure the hidden .themes are in: My Themes is your current theme. These .theme files are located in the hidden C:\Users\User-Name\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes folder. Go to folder options to view and check Show hidden files, folders and drives.

If you right click on desktop and then personalize do MY Themes and Aero Themes show up?
