    You can use TuneUp Utilities to change the theme and it works just fine. no need to patches or anything

    Step 1 - Download and Install Tune Up Utilities from ->Here<-

    Step 2 - Open It and click Customize Windows (at Left hand side)

    Step 3 - Click Visual Style ( Botton of Left hand Side)

    Step 4 - Now Click on Add > “Install Visual style from File”

    Step 5 - Choose the Visual Style ( .msstyles or .theme format ) you had downloaded from your Hard Disk.

    Step 6 - Click on “Apply Visual Style” to make it work.

    How to replace these files?

    • Login as a user with Administrative privileges -or- have Administrative credentials ready (check under the keyboard for a slip of paper).
    • Navigate to %systemroot%\System32
    • Right-click uxtheme.dll and click properties.
    • Take ownership of the file and close dialogs.
    • Repeat steps 3 and 4 for themeui.dll and shsvcs.dll
    • Right-click uxtheme.dll and click properties.
    • Give yourself (or group) Full Control permissions and close dialogs.
    • Repeat steps 6 and 7 for themeui.dll and shsvcs.dll.
    • Rename uxtheme.dll to uxtheme.old.
    • Rename themeui.dll to themeui.old.
    • Rename shsvcs.dll to shsvcs.old.
    • Copy patched files into %systemroot%\System32
    • Reboot (yes, this is really required)
    • Enjoy!
