    restore default color and appearance

    How do I restore *all* graphical user interface display to the defaults which are set out-of-the-box when you first start Vista? I want to wipe the slate clean and return to *every* default setting.

    My fourth grader changed something which destroyed the display of buttons inside the windows. Right now it does not display the edges of buttons when they are inside windows.

    I have tried rebooting, going into Control Panel\Personalization\Appearance Settings and resetting it to "Windows Vista Basic", "Windows Stardard", and "Windows Classic". All three failed with and without rebooting. I also tried the "Advanced" settings but none of them fixed things.

    Welcome

    I think the best way is to try system restore. Do you know how that is done?

    Go back a few days before the problem

    I should have given you the manual, before, I will now.

    This is good for Windows 7 and Vista
