    Unable to patch system files with Windowblinds 8 installed ?

    Hi guys, a couple of days ago I restored system files and installed Windowblinds 8, just to give it a try. Now I want to patch system files again, but it looks no possible after restart I'm unable to access Windows. So I need to boot in safe mode, restore system files and restart again.
    I guess I have to uninstall Windowblinds 8 to get everything working fine, even if Windowblind 8 is not loaded and no skin is applied to access Windows with patched files is not possible.
    Anyone knows if there is a way to patch system files (Universal Theme Patcher)and keep Windowblinds 8 installed ?

    Thanks

    One Man Army, I agree doing a fresh install of Windows would most likely solve the problem. I'm not sure if I'm willing to do it though to solve the error. I'm with you on the external hard drives, I always back up all my data frequently. Idle, I tried your method and unfortunately it did not work either. So what I'll do is just live with having to reboot to change themes, or I may reinstall ultra ux theme patcher instead since the problem didn't happen with it, and I don't often install windows updates. Thank you guys for your suggestions, much appreciated.

    uninstalling anything stardock might do the trick. its only reason i see that could give you this problem. only stardock i know that affects windows 3rd party themes the least is iconpackager and that can still cause a real mess if you are not careful. so try that, go to your "programs and features," remove everything stardock, blind/windowfx remove all patches also and restart and repatch. if u'd like u could use "iobit uninstaller" and do a deep uninstall of all your stardock including its registry entries. but i think a simple uninstall of it would be okay. create a restore point so you can revert back if it doesnt work. gd luck

    * by the way have you checked if u have a restore point from before all this happened? lot of times its what i miss to do first

    Well, I ended up going back to what I've been doing for the last few months and that is, to patch ultra ux on top of uxstyle (which was installed first). Did the trick for me, I guess since the themes switch perfectly once I boot from shut down mode on my pc. Thanks, again guys, for trying to help me out!

    I uninstalled stardock windowfx with the iobit uninstaller, would've liked to have been able to find any remnants of older stardock registry entries from their other programs that I had installed at some point, but I was unable to since I have previously uninstalled any other stardock material using control panel. Thanks for recommending I do this, this benefits the themes a lot, resizing using aero snap is much cooler and themed now!

    no problem. im glad u got it going again how u want.
    u could always installthose other stardock programs again then deep uninstall immediately using iobit. im sure you'd get any remnants from past installs of them

    Ha, good idea about reinstalling them again and using iobit uninstaller instead of cp.
    I like the powerful scan feature, it's a tool I can definitely see myself using to uninstall programs from now on with.
