UH OH... I lied.

Just powered this little biznitch up this morning and had the same issue.
I'll probably just uninstall this weekend and redo the install.

Fingers crossed.

Did you run this?

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

It will find and fix corrupt files, it's the best thing to do after the theme patcher.

Let us know how it goes.

Heya derekimo.
I just ran the "sfc /scannow" command (ran as admin).

Interesting test result:
"Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

I was really expecting it to find something and fix it for me.

Yeah, that picture is old of those three, just put those two you have in

C:\Windows\Resources\Themes and then go to personalization and change it.

I don't even know what theme that is in that screenshot.

What theme are you talking about?

Some of those are pretty old.

First, can you not type in all caps, it appears that you are shouting at us.

Second, I'm not the one who made the theme but I'll try to help.

Can you provide a link?
