This might have something to do with your video drivers. Try reinstalling them especially if you have ATI or NVIDIA drivers installed.

Also run the Scans in Safe Mode but if this is a brought in Desktop Theme I'm more likely to suspect that by installing it you have corrupted some Windows Files that are required in the process.

Also have you installed any software or Windows Patches since this theme was originally setup? If you have they could be the problem.

I had a similar problem. What solved it for me was to restore the uxtheme.dll file (C:\WINDOWS\system32).
