    That looks more like a video driver or DirectX problem.
    I would start by downloading/installing current video card drivers.
    You haven't posted any system information, so we really can't go much further.

    A DxDiag.txt would be helpful:

    Your changes maybe getting reverted if the files are read-only, but as tom6049 mentioned it would be a video card issue and may need to update your video drivers. Please post the dxdiag as mentioned
