Coz Uxtheme is not patched . To run a third party custom theme, you need to patch three system files namely themeservice.dll, themeui.dll and uxtheme.dll . As and when the three is patched, you can apply a third party theme like the one you are trying.

Follow the tutorial Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes, download and run the appropriate patcher from the link provided there, and then I hope your theme will work perfectly.

Please post back what happened after following the tutorial

This time again ?
Usually Patching uxtheme doesnot harm logonui , and that's why it is interesting . To get rid of the logon screen loop, try Startup Repair at least five consecutive times with restarts . When it logs on to windows successfully, then try to apply the theme. I hope this time it will work

Well that didn't still work and so since my stuff was backed up already I decided to re-install. Luckily this time the uxthemepatch was successful but I failed once again becuase as soon as I selected the theme it changes me to basic aero. I think I'll stop bothering you guys for a moment since I'll try contacting the creator of it on his dviantART page. Thanks for all the help guys I really did appericate and learned a few things on the way

You need to put the files you want to display at

C:\Windows\Resources\Themes.

Then, it will definitely work.

I had a very similar problem:

Login problem

Have a read through that.

Turns out the theme was at fault, but not sure why it's more then one theme.

Maybe that will spark some sort of super idea no one has thought of

Good luck.
