How to uninstall a theme

Hi, i recently installed a theme which replaced some files on my system like explorer.exe and i don't have a backup nor System restore.
How do i remove it? It even changed icons, the Orb, control panel icons, everything. It replaced aero defaults , so i can't really have Aero back.

Right click on desktop > Personalize > pick one (click on) of the available themes (or your original theme - if you have saved it).

See, thats the thing, the theme got overwrited. None of those work.

Hello Alex,

Without a restore point, you can do a repair install instead to fix it without losing anything.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
