Would this be a third party theme, I stopped using them as they are very temperamental when updates are done or other setting changed in windows.

have you tried to reset your them again?

Oh and this should be customizations.

you need to locate the wmploc.dll file for the theme and paste it in the system 32 folder ,
Rename the original wmploc.dll file by naming it wmplocbak.dll ,in order to rename it you will have to take ownership of trhe wmploc .dll file ,then add the new (red ) wmploc.dll,
you may get an error saying it expected a different number.
let us know how you get on. any more questions just ask.

edit: nice wallpaper by the way ,any chance of uploading it
