Hi, good evening

We had our old computer moved to other room so the kids can use it after we bought ours a brand new couple months ago. On theirs is XP and ours is Vista.

Both of the computers are using Firefox as browsers. Both were upgraded to the latest version, FF 3.0 and I notice on their XP has colorful icons on top menu while our Vista show its dull unlike on theirs. Prior to upgraded the FF to 3.0 v on Vista, at the start menu it used to be a crystal blue background and now its plain white background. If I may add, couple weeks ago when I clicked on a link in search engine and I get a "Antivirus XP" page, on Vista? I don't understand. Note: we didn't click anything on that page, each time we X it to close it we get annoying pop ups from that page.

We're using AVG and Comodo on Vista.

Please help before if it gets worse. Thanks.

Here's what the start menu and top menu on FF browser looks like
