hmmm. Strange. Goto your root directory, windows, resources, themes and check whether there are any files. If yes and they are msstyles, double click on it to load the theme. If loaded, check again in personalization.

Sounds like you may want to try this tutorial...SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker You'll have to repatch after that or use this instead, which is not a patch but will enable custom themes....Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7 Hope that helps you out.

When you go into personalization, there are diff category of themes. Under the Aero category select any1 and check whether it works. Also try to update ur video adapter drivers.
