    Home Page:
    Install Chrome, go to that particular website, right click in the blank area and click on Inspect Element. After that go to Resources and look for style.css (Most of the designers use style.css as the default css). Open that and you will see the Author details, theme details and all sorts of other details.

    P.S. Make sure you are using the latest google chrome

    Just check the source code for the theme. You will usually find it at the start, under the <title> and <meta> tags.

    look for something like:
    Code:
    http://website.com/wp-content/themes/[B]THEME-NAME[/B]/style.css

    Guys why are you so lazy. I see that 5 people thanked for that website. You need a website for that? You just need to right click on page - view source.

    It seems the only source of information the mentioned website uses is the style.css

    Yes, just find the style.css file, which is located usually there and:
    Code:
    http://website.com/wp-content/themes/THEME-NAME/style.css 
    - erase information for the theme in the top of style.css;
    - change THEME-NAME to SOMETHING-ELSE, renaming the folder containing your theme
