I have difficulties changing Windows themes. Whichever theme I try to use, it's just appear black. (It appears blank even in Personalize Desktop settings.) Aero does work, but I can't set background or any other theme.
This happened after I switched to windows classic and then back to aero (I was trying to solve images thumbnails, that would not preview Large icons (they were just white)).
I have tried:
Registry changes, such as:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System] “Wallpaper”=- “WallpaperStyle”=- [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System] “Wallpaper”=- “WallpaperStyle”=-
slideshow.ini file in Themes folder.

Nothing worked. Help?
