    Hi folks,

    Brand new here and forgive me for not reading this entire thread in case this has all been covered.

    New laptop with Windows 7 64bit. I ran Windows Theme Installer and every theme I have tried comes up as classic. Tried 4 or 5. So decided to revert back to t=my unpatched files and WTI throws an error that it does not have access to c:\windows\explorer.exebak (or close to that). Ran as admin even though I am the admin and same error.

    So, a few questions:

    1. Why can I not install a them as an aero theme, only classic when they are aero themes?
    2. How can I revert to my original files unpatched?
    3. What file sneed to be reverted? I seem to have three explorer.exe files - opne with bak and one with _wti_bak, if I recall.

    I'd love to get this to work, but if I can't, I'd at least like to revert to factory and try another solution.

    Thanks!

    Do remember to create a system restore point first always, before trying anything new.

    Run Windows Theme Installer as admin and see if it helps.

    In an elevated command prompt window which opens, type sfc /scannow and hit Enter. The sfc utility will run for a while and if any corruptions are found, replace them on re-boot. For details see System File Checker: Run sfc scannow, Interpret sfc.exe logs in Windows 7.

    Well, if I did a restore point, that would likely be 15 restore points back, so would also remove everything after. And since I am setting up a new computer, that would be massive changes.

    As I mentioned above, I DID try to run as admin and the same errors.

    Would really appreciate help getting back to ground zero on the changes this made.

    Did you run sfc /scannow ? That should put your explorer.exe to default state.

    I did not. I always worry it will replace more than I really wanted it to. So I did it manually. Then ran Windows Theme Changer (?) which worked perfectly.
