Windows 7: Self-signed UXtheme.dll that will work with third-party themes?

Self-signed UXtheme.dll that will work with third-party themes?

I like using third party themes, and the best thing that I've found to allow it is to use a patched uxtheme.dll (along with the other files). But Virtual stopped running when I have it patched, so I have to unpatch the file every time I want to start a VM. I asked on their forums, and they said they do not plan to fix this and that I am better off getting a self-signed uxtheme.dll. I don't know how to go about doing this, and I can't find any online myself. I don't want to try the other ways to allow third-party themes like installing services, because I've found they don't work all that well compared to this way. So, has anyone found any "signed" version of a uxtheme.dll that allows third-party themes? Or do you know another way to solve the problem? Thanks.
