    About a year or so ago i did the uxtheme patcher for themes and up until now its worked. I havent edited any of those files. i took off my theme for about a week, tried to apply a new one, and it instantly changes to the windows 98 based theme. I tried all the themes that used to work, same thing. :(
    How do i repatch my files to get this working again? ?

    Try un-patching then repatching.

    A windows update likely fixed the patched file, you'll need to repatch it.

    this is probably it.

    I haven't done this in over a year or so so Im not really sure about what to do about this

    Can i just use the patcher to patch over the files that have already been patched or do i need to use my backups (hopefully they are still there..) and then patch those backups?

    You'll want to get an updated patcher and patch the new files.

    Haven't used it on 7 so I can't really give advice, look up support for that patcher or try another.

    VistaGlazz from my experience handles Win Vista/7 theme patching perfectly. Though during the installation of it one might want to disable whatever software/toolbar they bundle with it.
