Hey guys. 


This is really difficult to explain but i'll do my best.


When I load up my Laptop, occasionally it will display colours schemes to look like XP and not my colour scheme, but then if i click google chrome the top bar (right at the top) would be what an XP internet browser looks like and such and then it'll flicker for a bit until it comes back to my normal chrome bar (This isn't anything to do with chrome). 


When I close all application that this is happening too it'll then go away and my PC will be normal.


Any advice?



It's very hard to imagine all the crazy things that things really are like. 

Electrons act like waves.. no they don't exactly, they act like particles.. no they don't exactly.

Hi -

Basic information from M/soft Windows 7 help topics.

To change the default Windows color scheme, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Display, and then click the Appearance tab.
  3. In the Scheme box, click the color scheme you want.

    If you want to define a custom color scheme, click a screen element in the Item box, and then click the color you want in the Color box.

    NOTE: For screen elements that contain text, you can also specify a font style, size, and color.
  4. Click OK.

Regards -
