Do you know how to open Services?

Check there, in Services, and see if the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service is started. If it is not, start it.

Check startup type of that service, it should be Automatic.

Now, this seems to be just another thread serving as a teaching example on why peeps shouldn't be stopping Windows services out of whim. Right?

What exactly happens when you choose another theme?

& now that you have started both services, have you tried creating a new theme? Let's see if that works.

Is it a custom theme you are trying to install?
If Yes. Have you patched the three system files?
