    After you got into Advanced Appearance settings, what did you do ?

    Try this........
    Go back to advanced appearance settings > under Item, click the pointer and select Desktop > under Color1, select black color > click Apply > click OK.

    Does that fix the problem?

    i didn't change any thing in there when i noticed the problem .. and system restore is not an option as i have done one since the problem began .. i have tried running other themes and such and no luck .. its like that on my laptop screen and i have a dell e176fp monitor hooked up with a vga cable and the problem persists on both screen.

    could it be a problem caused in "Intel graphics media accelerator driver for mobile" settings ?
