Small but annoying folder display problems in XP

  1. Hello Everyone!

    Before I go any further this thread isn't about any graphics cards problems (I hope) just a windows xp annoyance (I hope)

    I am running Windows XP home Service Pack 1 on an AMD Athlon XP 2000+

    Right take a look at the file attachment.

    I've pointed arrows to the problem. Whenever I track the mouse over the menus in some of my programs they turn white and the folder is white. It's not that I've done some pre-highlight thing (who would want to??)

    Im thinking a bug but I've run spybot, checked for viruses many-a-time and nothing comes up. Strange

    The office programs don't seem to be affected by it. Sonar, Reason, MSN, McAfee personal firewall, AVG Anti-Virus.

    I would call this a glitch in that software and/or you probably have older graphics-drivers.

    tried updated graphics drivers but nothing, running on an NVidia GeForce 5200 no the best but it was fine a while ago. I can't remember what I installed that made it go like that. I'm sure it's not a bug in the program because it's on nearly all the programs that I open, apart from the office programs. I might try a DLL or a registry cleaner see if that helps.

    If anyone else has any suggestions please feel free to post a note!
