Is Desktop Window Manager running in services?
Did you get Unsignedthemeservice running in task manager?(If not go to services & restart it)
When you use the themes that came with windows 7 does Aero work?

Do you per chance have ATI's Catalyst Control Center installed and running in the background?

Yes LiguidSnak I do have ATI's Catalyst Control Center installed and running in the background.
Is that conflicting with the theme issue?
