    Hello everyone..

    I've been having trouble with Win xp themes from last two days.It started while installing a new 3rd party theme,It came with a setup unlike with shell folders & such.
    I installed it well but didn't really liked it so i tried to uninstall it switch back to my old 3rd party theme ( normal ones) .It didn't work ,then I tried with default win xp themes but here the problem starts,My system tray & such aren't changing according to theme i apply,here is example


    win xp selected,yet some stuff is in classic style .

    now if i try the change the wallpaper ,the applied win xp theme gets name changed to modified & problem persists ,like in screenshot below


    To fix,I tried replacing new luna theme in windows\resources\themes folder in safe mode,but problem is still there after reboot.I tried placing fresh uxtheme.dll & patching it as well,I also tried to do system restore,yet nothing seems to be working,

    Any possible solution for my conundrum ^^
