    I have a weird problem in my windows 7. No matter which theme i select, it just appears as Windows classic theme. Like this
    http: // img827.imageshack.us /img827/1440/60916249.jpg

    I have checked the visual settings option and the best appearance option is selected. I have tried downloading new theme from web but it didnt solved the problem. I have tried changing the Graphics card drivers and Direct X yet no success. I guess some windows files related to the theme got corrupted somehow. I just dont know how to fix it. Please help...

    sfc.exe /SCANFILE=C:\windows\system32\themeservice.dll
    sfc.exe /SCANFILE=C:\windows\system32\uxtheme.dll
    sfc.exe /SCANFILE=C:\windows\system32\themeui.dll

    Use these in command prompt to 'fix', but this might not be the actual problem!

    If you are on 64bit you might want to use the following too. (though not really relevant..)

    sfc.exe /SCANFILE=C:\Windows\SysWOW64\themeservice.dll
    sfc.exe /SCANFILE=C:\Windows\SysWOW64\uxtheme.dll
    sfc.exe /SCANFILE=C:\Windows\SysWOW64\themeui.dll
