While installing Windows 7 for the first time - you are asked to set the preferred language, time and currency. Based on your regional setting, it installs set of themes and wallpapers.
For example: If you set English (United States) as your time and currency format, the associated desktop backgrounds and themes are installed.
In this case other themes and wallpapers of other English-speaking countries -- Australia, Canada, Great Britain and South Africa are hidden. By default you can't access these backgrounds or themes. But below is a simple way to install and use them:
For example: If you want to use Great Britain theme, go to: C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT\MCT-GB\Theme\ and open GB.theme. This will create a shortcut of the theme in Personalization section of Control Panel.
Now its ready to use!
Ps: I have installed the Kung Fu Panda 2 theme from Microsoft's site.
