Hi dddarrenccc, Welcome to Bleeping Computer. This is a total shot in the dark, but, perhaps you have the performance options set to not show visual styles on windows and buttons.
Go to Control Panel-> System-> Advanced tab-> Performance settings-> then scroll down to find a box with "Use visual styles on windows and buttons". If this box is checked, then the problem isn't my first guess, if unchecked, check it, hit apply, then ok. If it does not automatically change then go to change it as you would or through display and appearance. I hope this has helped you in some way.
