I would recommending reinstalling OS X. Before reinstalling, don't do a time machine backup. Just copy your applications and important documents. You should be fine.

For some reason, all of the icons (except for messages, sound, battery, and eject) are all still black text. I followed the instructions listed above -- why aren't the date/time and my name (user name) as well as the finder magnifying glass white? Please help!

I need to clarify that only the text/icons in the Finder menu bar at the top are problematic.

I would love to change my theme but I don't understand anything about what's listed in the description! Could you possibly create or at the very least link me to a walkthrough/tutorial for all of this?

Hey, I can't paste anything into, search.bundle/contents/resources
I get to search.bundle and it's not a folder, I can't go any further than that. What should I do? I tried to create a folder with that name but it told me it wont be a folder but a 'bundle'
Suggestions?
