On my pc - win xp home edition - I have two accounts; one administrator, one limited. The limited one is the one i mostly use for web access.

I've noticed lately that whenever I login to the limited account the password blips seem slightly skewed (i've attached photos). If I log out of the limited and go to the administrator account then the blips go back to normal. As long as I'm logged in to the limited account the blips appear skewed, including if I switch accounts while not logging off limited.

I've also noticed that with alot of applications the menu buttons act up with regards to color (i've attached photos).

Any ideas what this might be?

Okay, so.... it works fine on your administrator account? There are two options I can think of.

1. Go onto your Limited account. Now, go to Control Panel, Display, Change The Theme, scroll to Windows XP. This will reset all font issues, window issues, or anything else. You'll just have to change your wallpaper back to something you like, and your screensaver as well.

2. If option 1 doesn't work, you might have to pull a system restore. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tool, System Restore. Now, click back to the date before this started happening, and wait for a restart. It should be fine. This is only in a dire situation, and may not work. Option 1 is your best bet.

If this doesn't help, just post back.

thanks for the reply, I reset the themes in both accounts, the menu thing cleared up and the password blips did not. I didn't do a system restore.

Regarding the password blips, might that be some spyware issue?
