Before we go any further, did you, by any chance, turn on drive encryption for your drive?
I know that Windows routinely uses blue instead of black for the lettering for files/folders on which you've turned on Windows file compression. Green has been the color for encrypted files for some time now (see these DuckDuckGo search results).
I would be highly disinclined to switch the color back to black, even if it were possible, just because that vital piece of information is then lost. You might be OK if you can choose something other than green, but I'd make it something that you can read but that makes it obvious that this is not likely a plain jane file, but an encrypted one. I can find nothing obvious that would allow this change, but it is almost certainly controlled via the registry and someone may know a hack to allow you to change the displayed color of the text. I do not.

In a modern society where everyone thinks their opinion deserves to be heard nothing annoys me more than individuals who mistake their personal preferences for fact.
