Restore Finder in OSX 10.8.5 after theme installation

Dear all,
My brother installed the Nocturne theme for osx, but what he did not realized is that it was for osx 10.9, I have on my iMAc osx 10.8.5. which got me really ******.
http://aaronolive.deviantart.com/art/Nocturne-Theme-For-OS-X-10-9-x-326453358
Now the finder is all screwed up, as to remove the Nocturne theme only thing was to restore it to native maverick finder, and there is a "A" letter where the full screen arrows should be, as well as the multiple desktop background is really weird (not silver as it should be). How can I delete all the files from the theme, as there is no uninstall in the dmg file and/or restore the original 10.8.5. look without these glitches?
Just to mention, I am also downloading the MAverick update, however I am afraid that the update willdelete my files, as I don7t have them backed up (no space on my hard drive, nor external drives), so I would wish to avoid the update and just restore the original finder for my system.
Thanks a lot!

Have you tried command - N to open a new Finder window while in Finder?

  • Strange behavior in apps/monitor refreshing after theme installation

    Good times of the day everyone!
    I'm very new to archlinux and ArchLinux community (as you can see, this is my 1st post here).
    I use dwm and was playing around with themes.
    I found a GTK Theme - Moka which really suited my taste and installed it.
    But for some reason, after the installation, applications started showing stuff strangely (or maybe monitor refreshing is going strange, i don't really have an idea of what's happening).
    -Change in behavior of applications
    ---Midori:
    ------ Every time i switch between tags, strange big black box appears on the page. To get rid of it I have to scroll down-n-back the page;switch back-n-forth between workspaces; select all and deselect all in the page; click to adress bar.
    ------ When Opening links/sites|Refreshing the pages - big black box shows up and goes away/sometimes doesn't go away.
    ---Pidgin:
    ------ Every time I receive a new message, the text turns into a box of strange mix of colors
    Here are the pictures:
    Would appreciate it if anybody would help me to solve this problem.

    Update:
    I've noticed one more strange thing, in Midori if I have only one tab opened, no black box appears.
    EDIT:
    Never mind.. I guess it was the error in theme itself.

  • How do I restore Find My iPhone (version 3.0) after resetting an iPhone 4 (OS 7.1.2)?

    I have an older iPhone 4 which can't be upgraded to the new OS 8, and had to reset it. Everything was restored from back-up except the Find My iPhone app which is now version 4.0 and requires OS 8 or greater. Is there a way to revert the Find My iPhone app to 3.0 - or is there a download site that supports 3.0?

    hey danbi, thanks for the reply.  I went to icloud, but there was nothing new there, went through that whole process when I updated to iSO 5.1.  I can't find how to get it started on my PC.  I have no working icon anywhere.  The icon only appears in my apps folder, but doesn't do anything when I click on it except get a blue ring around it.   When I right click, I have the following options, get info; show in windows explorer; and delete. Any other suggestions?

  • I cant find my pdf/ibooks on computer after backing up my iPad (they are on my iPad).   Also, I'm having issues with my Ipad turning off about every 2 minutes so I want to restore it.  Dont want to lose my files from my iPad.

    Actually I have 2 problems:  I cant find my pdf/ibooks on computer after backing up my iPad (they are on my iPad).  I looked under Ipad, I Books, PDFs, and it doesn't show them on the computer. How do I manually transfer these files?
    Also, I'm having issues with my Ipad turning off about every 2 minutes, and I want to restore it.  I want to make sure all of the files are backed up before I restore.  My trouble started when I was trying to update my IPad but it was taking too long (internet was scetchy) so I powered off...now Im having problems.  I haven't tried to update again since this problem. Any suggestions?  Should I restore? Should I update to 7.0.6?  (currently 7.0.3).

  • I ordered the full creative cloud on sunday and received an order number but still can't open any of the programs. When i check the status of my order online, it says it can't find it. Is this normal after 3 days?

    I ordered the full creative cloud on sunday and received an order number but still can't open any of the programs. When i check the status of my order online, it says it can't find it. Is this normal after 3 days? I tried asking in a chat window instead of the forum but no one answered and after about ten minutes my screen restarted and closed the chat window down. It seems a little frustrating not knowing what happened to my order and not being able to contact anyone. Is all this usual with Adobe or are they just having technical problems this week?

    i have and can find all duplicates in my library - after i find them is there a way to delete them (in mass) other than deleting one at a time?

    The only way they would all come over is if your wife had automatic downloads turned on in her store settings on the phone before she downloaded the apps. A popup for this option also comes up when you first sign into an apple id on the phone in the app store. If she didn't have that setting turned on, she'll have to download them one by one.
    She could also try to sync them over from a computer that has itunes on it

  • How do I get finder to recognize my hard drive after pulling my hard drive out without eject...? Is my hard drive dead? I see it in disk utility... Can I get my info back?

    I have a seagte back up plus. I pulled my hard drive out without ejecting it and now finder dosn't find it but I see it in disk utility (although I cant repair permissions) How do I get finder to recognize my hard drive after pulling my hard drive out without eject...? Is my hard drive dead? I see it in disk utility... Can I get my info back?
    Thank you so much for any help

    In Disk Utility you need to see a volume or partition in addition to the drive.
    If all you see is the drive, then when you ejected it you proably corrupted the volume or partition on the drive.
    If that is true then your chances of getting anything back are slim at best.
    About the only thing I know that might work not is to send the disk out to a service for recovery. This is going to cost like $$$$.
    Is the data worth that much?

    I hope this will help you with your problem:

    You can restore your backup whenever you want from iTunes or iCloud, depending where you made it.
    Let us know if you succeeded or need any further help.
    I believe you are missing the point. The OP has already restored from back up, but failed to include a specific app in the back up and is trying to recover data for it, which in this case is not possible.

  • Can anyone tell me how to restore my itunes library and playlists? After I downloaded mountain lion my library is missing and my devices can be synced to only one library ...the missing one

    can anyone tell me how to restore my itunes library and playlists? After I downloaded mountain lion my library is missing and my devices can be synced to only one library ...the missing one

    That .itl file actually is the library -- at least the critical part of it although the library is actually many files and folders.
    Try starting iTunes and immediately hold down the option key.  When it asks, guide it to the .itl file.
    It's really hard to say without being able to poke around your computer.  Upgrading should not delete the old library, but still it happens to the very, very few which is why we make backups before updating.  If the old library file is gone then so are your playlists.  You can always see if the following is of any use:

  • I downloaded acdsee camera flash (us$0.99) in Hong Kong's app store, but i cannot find it in the app store after i changed to another iphone. it seems that the app is no longer available in HK, how can I get back the app?

    i downloaded acdsee camera flash (us$0.99) in Hong Kong's app store, but i cannot find it in the app store after i changed to another iphone. it seems that the app is no longer available in HK, how can I get back the app?

    First make sure you are searching the name correctly.
    If the app is no longer in the App Store it is no longer available for download. This happens when Apple has found the app violates the agreement with the developer or when the developer no longer wants the app listed in the App Store.
    If the app is truly no longer in the App Store your only option is to copy it from iTunes on the computer you normall sync with.

This software was restored to this computer from Time Machine after a theft of my old Mac. How can I fix this? It keeps telling me that there are missing files, too. If I upgrade to Elements 12 or beyond, will this fix the problem?

    You can't sign in because there is nothing to sign in to. For PSE 10 the only sign in was to photoshop.com, which has been dead and gone for a year and half. Just skip the sign in. Reinstalling will not change this.
