Windows 7: Themes Won't Download

Themes Won't Download

I have had this problem for awhile, I didn't notice until it was too late to do system restore.

The themes just won't download. See attached pic. They just do an endless cycle of adding the themes, but not actually downloading them.

Any ideas?

Post a link to the theme and I will see if I can download it.
Have you tried a different browser like Firefox or chrome?

I have tried IE and Foxfire. It's all themes, not just that one.
I installed 8 briefly and I could download the themes, but not with 7.

Is it just a .themepack you cannot download? There are many different types of themes that's why ask for a download link.
Try Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to fix any corrupt system files you may have.
