    I had this problem too but I solved it with 2 mouseclicks. My laptop booted to the login screen fine but after entering my password my screen just turned black and I couldn't do anything. How I solved it:
    I clicked on ease of acces and then clicked high contrast. This loaded the high contrast windows theme and thus unloaded the malfunctioning theme. All my stuff loaded fine and I was able to change my theme back to my normal windows theme.

    I hope this helps if you are facing the same problem as I were.

    Running into a brick wall here.

    I came across this post after trying to update to Windows 10, only to find that the install media wouldn't allow me to due to having modified system files, but uninstalling UltraUXThemePatcher resulted in the "blank screen" issue.

    Thankfully I had set a restore point, and was able to revert to that and, after finding this post, I thought I had it sorted but, after disabling Fast Boot, rebooting, applying a stock theme (and deleting the extra themes I had installed), rebooting, then uninstalling the theme patcher, I'm still getting the blank screen. Any ideas?
