There was once a time when I used 3rd Party theme in my Win 7 desktop. The theme was named CTX Black Shiny. But for some reasons, I have removed it now, my computer is running well. But look at the following picture, It's the 'Personalize' window:

Look at the RED HIGHLIGHTED area. The left bar should not look like this, I am currently using the Win 7 default theme. But the Personalization window looks like that, the left bar is black (CTX Black Shiny is a dark type theme). I have removed my previous theme completely. Note that to use the theme, I needed to run 'Theme Resource Changer' to use the shell icons provided by the theme. Theme Resource Changer is a software (3rd Party maybe) which changes the some dll files of themes so that I can run different icons instead of the defaults. I have also completely removed the software using REVO Uninstaller, but the problem isn't solved. What to do? Can't I get my previous windows back? :)

Try using System File Checker,
System File Checker merely makes sure that all system files are where they should be. The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
Open an Elevated Command Prompt window. To do so, click Start, then type cmd in the Start Search box. In the results area, right-click cmd.exe, and then click Run as administrator. You will be prompted to type the password for an administrator account. Click Continue if you are the administrator or type the administrator password. Then, click Continue.

At the command prompt, type the following command, sfc /scannow and then press ENTER.

The scan may take some time to complete. Windows will repair any corrupted or missing files that it finds. If required, Windows may prompt you to insert the Operating System CD.
