Installed theme ruined windows

So i got some themes that edited some windows files and screwed up windows explorer, now it crashes whenever i'm trying to browse through files inside of a program. (ex. opening a document in microsoft word crashes word). Is there a way to restore this somehow?

Hello Cardinals7879, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you added these themes to undo them and restore Windows 7 back.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Welcome to the forum,

Have you tried System Restore

You could also try this to repair corrupt files,

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
