Note: Anti Virus apps cannot correctly distinguish between apps that modify Windows system files with the user's consent and apps that maliciously modify the files, so disable your antivirus or windows defender temporarily when you want to download and install skinpack.


Unfortunately, the visual styles on Windows 10 can not change the entire GUI like in previous versions of the OS, but only the style of windows, wallpaper (wallpaper), start button, cursors and sounds. The taskbar remains unchanged.

If your theme not changed or its like classic windows you need to install uxtheme patcher from here and after restart select new theme from personalization. In rare cases after the Windows 10 Creators Update, the patcher is not able to take ownership of the necessary files in c:\windows\system32 (uxtheme.dll, UXInit.dll, themeui.dll). 
Only solution today: Sign in as Administrator, take ownership to the 3 files and grant full authorization, reboot and afterwards use the patcher again as Administrator. The modification should work now.

I get a malware, virus, spyware, trojan warning.
This is triggered due to the installer. Also if you see security error on chrome or firefox just click on Details and then click on visit this site or try other browser or use download manager apps like orbit and IDM.
I cannot open the download file.
Disable your anti-virus or windows defender app temporarily and try again.
SkinPack make changes to your system files, SkinPack works that way! It modifies your system files to change icons. If you do not want this, you can not use SkinPack, sorry! SkinPack will modify system files like imageres.dll to change icons and antivirus dont permission to do that! Modifying system files and changing system configuration may get reported as malware by some antivirus or windows defender software. You need to temporary turn-off antivirus or windows defender software so that program won't be interfered during download/installation/uninstallation.
If you feel insecurity with this, you can consider ThemePack as it doesn't involve modifying system files.

I see a blank screen after the login screen, the taskbar and desktop icons is absent.
Press Control + Shift + Escape. The Task Manager will open. Click File -> Run new task. Click Browse. Type %windir%\system32 in the File name: textbox and press Enter.Right-click cmd.exe and click Run as administrator. Type sfc /scannow in the window that appears and press Enter. Restart. The app you're using may have been superseded by SkinPack which has excellent stability and very less likely to cause errors.
If you can’t login to your PC after installing SkinPack, something in your system is conflicting with the pack. Try uninstalling it from Safe-Mode by running “uninst.exe” in “C:\SkinPack\”. Or from Windows Recovery (for power users) by running “uicons.exe” in “C:\SkinPack\”. And if you’re only getting black screen, please follow this steps:
1. Boot Windows normally until you see black screen.
2. Open task manager by either holding CTRL+SHIFT and hit ESC or holding ALT+CTRL and hit DELETE then choose task manager.
3. Click on ‘File’ menu and select ‘Run new task’
4. Click ‘Browse…’ and select file ‘C:\SkinPack\uninst.exe’.
5. Click ‘Open’ and then ‘OK’ to run uninstaller.
6. After finishing uninstallation, reboot and install fixed build again.
If you can’t open task manager at all, it’s probably not caused by error with explorerframe.dll file. There’re many kinds of mysterious black screen problems so it’s hard to track them all. Please try using recovery to repair your computer instead by following this guide. after uninstall if your icons not back to normal then you need to refresh icon cache. If you cant find uninstaller you can download it from here.

Every time I try to install or uninstall your application the monitor remains black after the restart. How can I fix this?
Fast Startup/FastBoot is the problem. 1) disable Fast Startup, 2) shut down (do not restart), 3) boot up, 4) Is this too late, only a repair installation (inplace upgrade) or a complete new installation helps.

The pack I choose to install messed up my system beyond repair, what should I do now?
You’ve been advised in the download page to Create a Restore Point, so when such a rare thing happens, you can easily Restore your System to the pre-installation status. We’re not responsible if you choose not to take such a precaution.

    Hello, how are you? (I hope and I hope so)

    Any theme that low for free with the advertisements is not open, I put the password “skinpacks.com” and always appears the error “Corrupted file or wrong password” regardless of the theme.

    Could you help me to make the same mistake?
    I’ve tried everything I could within the little knowledge I have.

    Am I sticking advertisement in vain?

    Okay I’ll be quick and to the point. Purchased one skinpack for the $2.99 since none of the free ones will successfully install from their .RAR claiming incorrect password or corruption. The skinpack (HUD Gold) installs as I configure it (without RocketDock or “special offers”) and I follow all prompts and instructions throughout the process. Windows 10 since now it matters. Reboot and select the Theme from Themes when it pops up at boot. Nothing apparent changes in doing so, but beside the point.
    What does change: Mouse cursor, Wallpaper, Icons, and some of the system text colors and highlighting.
    What doesn’t change: File name text colors; most system text colors; Chrome’s address bar color and URL text color (I remember this would change on successful installations prior); Window frames – no skin; Taskbar – no skin; Start Menu – no skin; Start Button – no skin.
    I do have StartIsBack++ and it does not show the skins for the Start Menu; Task Bar; or Start Button from the skinpack.
    I’ve also downloaded Aero Tweaker and done the three minimum steps indicated prior to installing, but willing to recheck them to make sure.
    Worth noting: I’ve recently had to reset Windows because the recent Creators update locked up my login into a looping login. I couldn’t find a way around it so I reset keeping what I could. Since then I’ve had issues with permissions I’m almost certain are mostly cleared up, but can’t finish deleting the Windows.old folder (there are only two empty folder directories left that won’t delete).
    In a nutshell it would seem unrestricted configurable things are getting changed, but things gated by the Windows Shell aren’t. I am an admin and should have full admin rights. I am running the installer as an admin. But something seems screwed up with admin rights and I can’t figure out what. Advanced SystemCare also shows nothing wrong, but something is.
