    The buttons are all funny in my Windows windows...see the screenshot. This is all a result of me killing the ugly Windows default look thingy, with the blue and the like. Here, look at the screenshot. Note the window control buttons and the radio buttons and the scroll buttons:

    Blindingly obvious, but I take it that you have turn "sue visual styles and buttons" back on and tried other set styles?

    I have turned it back on, but I'm not sure what you mean "tried other styles." I'm a winxp nubcake.
