It could be the the dll file is corrupt and you could try copying over a good one like this or try the link below.
You could try and replace the dll from the XP CD. Unregister it first then expand the new file and reregister it.
regsvr32 /u c:\windows\system32\uxtheme.dll
Expand d:\i386\uxtheme.dl_ c:\windows\system32\uxtheme.dll
regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\uxtheme.dll
