After IE9 RC Install Custom themes not functioning!

Hey guys!
I installed IE9 RC last night, wanting to check out all the new features. I was pleased with it, but i have an issue.
My custom themes have stopped functioning! I restored the default DLL's with UXThemePatcher then repatched, still no difference! Can anyone give me any advice on how to fix this? In the end i might need to do a system restore, but i would rather not do that until i get other solutions if there are any.
Cheers, lindsaymobil22

I know some have had problems with gadgets after installing IE 9 betas. I haven't heard of anyone having theme problems. You can try uninstalling IE 9 and see if that restores the theme. Or if no help, you can run the System File Checker to return your system files to default, and try patching and applying again.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
