Navigate to windows\System32 3. Right-click uxtheme.dll and click properties. 4. Take ownership of the file and close dialogs. 5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for themeui.dll and shsvcs.dll 6. Right-click uxtheme.dll and click properties. 7. Give yourself (or group) Full Control permissions and close dialogs. 8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for themeui.dll and shsvcs.dll. 9.
