    I have recently purchased a Sony VAIO Laptop, running Windows 7 Premium. On my attached screenshot, you will notice parts of the pages are transparent, I can see my desktop and other images which are underneath. Is this normal on Windows 7 or should I return it to the store from which I purchased it?

    As always, your help will be most appreciated.

    Right-click your desktop.

    Click Personalize.

    Click Windows Color and Appearance.

    Remove the tick mark next to "enable transparency."
