Windows 7 Loads Incorrect Themes :S

Hey all!

I am running windows 7 x64 ultimate (7600)

I patched uxtheme file thingys with universal theme patcher file thingy

sorry about lack of proper names btw...

I installed a custom theme

and all was well in the world of windows...

i then unlocked the global themes (i may have made mistakes there cos not all of them showed up afterwards)

and now... whenever i click on any theme that i did not create... it loads completly the wrong theme with no obvious pattern to which theme it will load or why

to be clear... all custom themes that i created myself work fine... but all others including MS built in themes no longer load the correct backgrounds or VStyles or anything... please help xxx

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
but that will mess your custom themes, then you'll have to take ownership of the whole windows folder, if you want the custom themes functional again... It was MR.Gim aka Mark recommendation. Check this tut, its in our tutorial section, and its a good one, as every other tutorial actually Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
I would still go with system restore as first option
cheers

no way!!

System restore as first option?

sorry but erh.... what sort of tech support is that

System restore in my view should NEVER be used

Well i managed to correct the problem anyway without such DRASTIC measures.

Well it seems this problem was unique to me and my insane way of doing things

But sure... just let me piece together what i did

First of all of I removed everything i could from themes folder..
(moved files from C:\Windows\Resources\Themes)

leaving behind only the windows themes (that are locked by the system and can not be deleted (easily))

i then opened Regedit

browsed to
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Themes\InstalledThemes\MCT]

Deleted all items

browsed to
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Wallpapers\KnownFolders\Windows Wallpapers\MergeFolders]

Deleted all items


this effectively gave me a fresh start to reinstall all my themes, however it left me without the globilzation themes which i am reluctant to add back
