Re: Black Menu and Favorites bar in IE8
It will reoccur because of a third-party desktop themeing software (or one
of your custom Desktop Themes) is reapplying a defective theme each time the
computer is rebooted or the Desktop is Refreshed...
Startdoc's Windows Blinds or AlienGuise (may come pre-installed on some
Alienware computers). You need to disable these programs in either your
Windows Startup list or your Programs>Startup folder. to stop them loading
and running at windows startup time.
If you don't have any programs like these installed and the problem
re-occurs then it will be your current Custom Desktop theme.
