    I wanted to customize my MacBook (Black, 2.4 GHz, 4GB RAM, 250GB HD, and OS 10.6.8) a bit and was able to switch around the looks of my icons no problem. I then found a theme or skin online and tried to apply it, but when I did, it looked horrible and nothing like it was supposed to.

    I got the skin from here: http://www.robertourso.com/goodies/goodies.html

    The one that I am having trouble with is the Caesar Release skin (the second one down). If anyone has any help in this area, I would appreciate it. The instructions that came with it told me to uninstall it with the uninstaller on my machine, but I don't know what that is talking about. I've searched for a general or universal uninstaller, but I don't seem to have one, nor do I have an uninstaller specific to the skin. The download did come with a program called Theminator, which, when opened, simply asks if I want to "enable" or "disable" theme-ing. Clicking disable and logging out and back in took away some of the skin's properties but I am still left with a lot of the mess (i.e. when using the column/list function in Finder I am left with the icons only and the text of the files invisible or white, and the navigation buttons in the Finder window are blank). See below.

    This is why doing this kind of stuff is a bad idea. Reinstall the OS.
