And does anyone knows how to switch back to the normal themes?
I have the classic themes all the time.
I can switch the themes without problems, but the classic remains.

Allready thanks.

It seems your theme switched to Windows Classic. You will need to change it to Windows Aero to get the Windows 7 appearance back.

This is because you are on a domain and the Domain Administrator has set forth some protocols that will not let you do this.

If you boot up your computer using hirens boot disk you can log in as the administrator and then you will have the privileges to change this.

Which settings could be made by the administrator. I'm sure when i ask him, he will allow me to do so... The only thing is that i have to say what to change.
