Hi. Try doing a system restore. To do this, do what you do to start explorer and run rstrui.exe. This is your system restore process. If this doesnt work or there is no restore point, then you gotta do a system recovery.

Good luck

Only option is to

Boot into safemode

Go to run and type

sfc /scannow and click ok

This should automatically replace the patched uxtheme.dll with original one

If that doesnt fix

Just go to run and type

cmd and click ok

Now run these commands and press enter one by one


dir /s /a uxtheme.dll

Now you can see thatdifferent locations of the file

You can see like this

Directory of C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-uxtheme_31bf3856ad364e35

07/14/2009 07:11 AM 332,288 uxtheme.dll
1 File(s) 332,288 bytes

Just browse to this folder and copy the uxtheme.dll(normally 330 kb) to system32 folder and replace the corrupted file

Restart the PC

This is simple process.If you are confused then do a system restore
