    On one of my pc's selected text appears on a dark background colour which is hardly visible on dark backgrounds or templates
    So it's in that case almost impossible to see what you have selected.
    Normally this colour should be lightblue.

    Since this selected background colour seems to be a general setting of Windows 7, is there a way to change this into it's original state?

    As you can see the selected area is darkgreen

    Right-click your desktop > Personalize > Window Color > Advanced appearance settings >
    On the Window Color and Appearance dialog, select "Selected Items" from the Items drop-down list.
    Select a color from the Color drop-down.
