Then I clicked on the Red Fusion theme under Personalize to activate the theme. But nothing's changed. Is there something else that I need to do?

Hi - I am trying to install third party themes (just for changing the wallpaper, desktop icons, pointers, and sounds – no .msstyles files included - not trying to apply any Aero effects). I've tried using UxStyle (user account control is turned off) but after installing and trying to double click on a .theme file I get this error message: "This theme cannot be applied to the desktop". I know that I can re-create the theme and re-save it in the personalization area but I’m looking for something quicker as I have hundreds of themes. Also, is there a way to have these themes automatically show up in the Personalization area – some way to “import” them? I'm driving myself crazy trying to figure this one out. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help and for your time.

If they are just themepacks or theme files, just click on them. You dont need to patch system files or nothing since it isnt a msstyles.
