    Arrow Custom Themes won't apply PROPERLY ( W8.1.1 )

    To all experienced themers out there, I'm having trouble in applying customs themes on my machine (any themes for 8.1.1; armoured, zero-g, HUD, by design. etc.).
    Everytime i apply a theme, nothing changes on my UI (only cursors, theme icons, folder/settings background color (usually becomes gray of black when i apply a certain theme) will change, the rest remains unchanged. I've attached an image of my desktop using Armoured theme 8.1.1 below:


    As you can see on the personalization window, background is dark gray which is usually the same for other themes when they are not fully applied, also overall window UI of like my folder remains unchanged.

    My Settings:

    All requirements: installed as Administrator
    Native Desktop Resolution: 1366x768 (laptop)
    OS: Windows 8.1.1 updated
    GPU/display Drivers: updated
    Custom Theme Enabler: UltraUXTheme 2.3 which works mostly for everyone except ME (2.4 does not also work), Uxstyle (have worked when I'm on 8.0 but gives me blackscreen afterwards as I was unaware of the issue, so no go for now)
    Other apps: OldnewExplorer 1.1, Aero 1.2.5, Classic Shell 4

    If anyone knows how to fix this or have an idea of what I may have overlooked, that will be much appreciated.

    Update: As I tried both Classic shell removal and theme switching with high textures, result were unfortunately still the same. I can't think more of what I should do as I've already tried alot of methods to make it work.
    Is there is any last resort which I could do other than reinstalling windows?

    You could try using a restore point, or, you could uninstall UltraUXThemePatcher, apply the defalt aero metrics, and restart, than install UxStyle. I'd recommend just sticking with UxStyle for now, can't go wrong with it because it doesn't involve patching of sytem files to enable 3rd party custom themes.
