This might be a blind guess but make sure you doesn't have the options like Prevent theme change or similar options enabled in group policy and then try changing theme. Refer to below link for explanation.

Do you still have Universal Theme Patcher on your pc? Run the sfc /scannow again to make sure. And did you Disable User Account Control User Account Control - UAC - Change Notification Settings when you installed the Uxsytle

From the Uxstyle guide
Quote:
Q: I installed the program but I can't see the process nor can I use a theme...help!
A: This normally is the result of not turning off UAC completely before installing the program. Uninstall UxStyle Core Beta from Programs and Features, restart the computer, turn off UAC, restart the computer, install UxStyle Core Beta, restart the computer. Your theme should work then.
Did you restart after disabling UAC
