I downloaded UxStyle to patch my system files to get custom themes working. Now I realized that I like the classy look of Windows 7 the best and want to go back to that. That is simple enough. But the question I have is if I uninstll UXstyle will it change the modifications it made to my system files. If not how do I go about and restore my system to its initial state.
UxStyle does not patch any system files like most patchers used to. Instead, UxStyle runs in the background (as a Windows service) and patches the memory of the system where the relevant files were loaded instead of the actual files on disk. This has the benefit that Windows updates and restores do not require re-patching.
As such, when you uninstall UxStyle (or simply stop the running program), its effects go away until you reinstall and run the program.
Therefore, since none of the system files were modified, there is nothing to restore.
