Personlization for themes does not allow for an Right-Click > save. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been having inconsistent issues with this problem. In the path:

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization

    Once you configure and change your themes, and profile setup, you are supposed to right-click and save it so that you can select that option permanently.

    Well, I can't for some reason. The issue is happening specifically on my Desktop. Not my laptop (anymore).
    The first time I installed Windows 7 Ultimate RTM on my laptop and on my desktop, I had several problems (this issue being one of them), So, I reinstalled the OS. This fixed several issues. However, this issue still remained.

    Well, I recently installed Windows 7 Professional on my laptop because my mouse and desktop driver continuously became unusable and would not start. I am not sure why. However, I can somehow save themes now. I am wondering if it is that possible that there could be a corrupt file on installation. When running a CRC/MD5/Hash checker, everything comes back fine.

    So, is there any command that can register .dll file or any files that need to be associated so that you can right-click and save a theme?

    If you need any more information, please let me know.
