I downloaded the Ascend install exe, ascend-0.9.5.114-py2.5.exe and installed it.
It installed ok and although I haven't got a clue as to what I'm looking at at least
the drop-down menus appeared as normal. I could select something and it worked ok.
On the Ascend web page it says you have to install it with Administrator privileges.
I think if you uninstall Ascend and then reinstall with Admin privileges it may work ok.
Right-click the install exe and select 'Run as administrator'.
