    Right click on blank part of desktop,select Properties,click Themes tab.On the left is a dropdown box,select modified theme,then delete.

    I.Are you sure your clicking Apply then OK ? If you just click OK or cancel nothing will stick.
    2.Try going to Appearance tab and make sure Windows standard is the color scheme.
    3.I`m out of material.
