Sometimes these things can get unpatched. Try running the patcher again to make sure all 3 files are still patched. If not patch them, restart and then try the themes that dont work. Also, make sure you have followed instructions on copying and pasting the system files exactly like you are supposed to.

Download Universal ThemePatcher.zip . Get your version, and run it . Patch themeservice.dll , themeui.dll and uxtheme.dll. Restart your computer. Now copy and paste only the theme (not any extras) in C:\Windows\Resources\Themes .

I hope there will be no problem then. If still it is a problem, post the link of the theme here.

It's been a while since I messed with themes, but I do remember downloading ones that just simply didn't work, and reverted to a classic or high contrast theme.

Are you running fullglass.exe? If you are, remember to exit it when using a lighter theme.

So is it the high contrast texts in lighter themes dut to fullglass.exe running ? I thought high contrast means basic and high contrast themes
