Folders/Programs don't highlight anymore?

I recently installed a certain theme, and it messed up my computer. HOWEVER, I got absolutely everything back to normal except when I hover my mouse over a folder it doesn't have that highlighting effect anymore. Can someone tell me how to re-enable this? Thank you very much. (:
