Here you go download and extract the zip folder to your desktop open the folder and put both 1 Cheese folder and 1 Cheese.theme file in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes

Then open up the basic folder and put the 1 Cheese.theme file in C:\Windows\Resources\Ease of Access Themes

It will show up in Personalization as Cheese in both aero and basic themes.

First, I attempted to install the UxStyle, but it failed, saying that some of my files were "tampered with", so I assumed that maybe I enabled custom themes on this computer in the past.

I proceeded with positioning the files of the "Cheese" themes in their respective locations, and I was able to see and apply them from the "Personalization" utility, however both of them are applying the "Windows Classic" effects on both the taskbar and the windows of applications. Something's wrong, or?

Change back to the default aero theme,
Then do Option 2 of this tutorial it will not harm any data or programs SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will fix the system files at Universal Theme Patcher changed then try UxStyle again.
