thanks for your comment. from all these I'm learning because i'm little new to android.
However I still believe my ROM OS is rooted. Because
1. After installing the TWRP custom recovery I installed SuperUser.zip by Koush to root the ROM
2. When I run root explorer it allows me to replace files into System folders with root access( Super User).
HTC has their own HTC Sense thing running on top of Android. Can that be replacing the system folders every-time it restarts? which is not happening in other phones.

Yes I would have fixed but I was only running my stock OS rooted.
