Windows 7: Black Screen after Welcome Screen

Black Screen after Welcome Screen

Hello and thanks for reading this. My issue is that I tried to install a custom Windows 7 theme that didn't go so well. After the Welcome screen, I get a black screen with a cursor that responds to the mouse being moved. There is no background, icons, start button or taskbar. I can open Task Manager and open up Google Chrome and get on the internet which is how I am typing this. When I hit the Windows key, nothing happens. I did note that explorer.exe isn't in the processes tab in Task Manager. It seems like something is up with explorer.exe. There is barely any processes going on. Here is the list:
A lot of chrome.exe

The services tab is fine and dandy with multiple things running such as Bonjour and Kodak items. However there are some processes with their status as stopped.

Please help me if possible. Thanks.

Windows screen flashes, random grey screen & random black screen
This is driving me crazy. Right after I boot my laptop, the screen flashes randomly. Also something is stealing focus from what I am working on to something else. Then it likes to suddenly go to a grey screen. I have to manually reboot. If that is not enough, it like to just reboot.

Nvidia GeForce GT 555M, games in full-screen cause black screen?
Hi, gamers! Starting a few weeks ago, any game I try to play in full-screen, excluding League of Legends, has completely black-screened, but I can still hear the audio behind it. It would seem I can still Alt+Tab, open Windows Media Center, and other misc. commands, but all of it is done with my...
