All i can suggest jack is that you follow this:

To apply the theme,

1. Copy all the items in the folder 'Theme' to c:Windows\Resources\Themes
2. Then, right-click on the desktop & choose 'Personalize'
3. Choose the 'Darkclear 7' theme in the 'installed Themes' section.

If that doesn't work then try re-patching your system files.

I assume other styles work??
