    Apply any patches to uxtheme.dll recently?
    Also did you pick/try a default color scheme, or a custom one?

    Hello Antihiatus,

    What color scheme are you in now? If it is Windows Classic, then check to make sure that the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager Service is set as Started and Automatic.

    Plus, see if refreshing the WEI score may help.

    Hope this helps for now,
    Shawn

    Antihiatus,

    You would open the Services (click on this link) window and check to make sure that the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager service is set as Started and Automatic.

    Check your themes. It looks as though you have it set on one of the high-contrast options. Try an alternative theme.
