I've installed some themes in Windows 7 from Microsoft site, couple of themes I mistakenly installed twice and I want to remove the duplicated themes. I dont see any uninstall option for themes. I also checked the C:\Windows\Resources\themes folder however the "Bing Dynamic" theme that i want to uninstall is not present there as well.

In the themes menu there should be an option when you right click on the theme... right click -> delete theme. Note that you can't delete the theme you're currently using, you have to switch to another one first and then delete the theme.

Some themes are located at %UsersProfile%\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Themes too, as a side note.
