visual settings-Start Button & minimise/close

  driving man 22:50 09 Nov 05

Since having to rebuild my laptop The Start button has shrunk and is no longer the original green. Also The minimise / Close buttons on the top right of a page are now just grey with a black - a black maximise and black X. Have compared settings with my desktop and can se no real difference. Yes I know I'm being thick and it isnt the end of the world but can anyone put me right. Am on xp home classic look. PS wife has tied putting me right for 18 years and shes failed.

No CRX have checked that. I also have oher problems such as calculator appearing for no reason and outlook express doing same. This on A laptop which has "restore partition" but no discs so cannot do a totally clean restore. Have deleted all virus protection and installed Avast with spybot, adaware and a2.just to make sure of no conflicts. So basiclally PC is now clean. I must admit I am totally lost for an answer.
