W7 and IE8 problems

Just got my new computer with windows 7 factory installed with IE 8. Neither IE8 nor Firefox will display any background template or icons from any internet site. I get all the text and images correctly, just no background colors or buttons. I installed Safari, which works perfectly, but I really got used to IE 8 on my old laptop and would like to be able to utilize it again. I have Zone Alarm AV (Had Norton installed from the factory, but I don't like Norton, so I uninstalled it in favor of ZA. Oh yeah, it was doing the same thing with Norton. Any ideas?

Do you have the IE8 compatibility update installed? It is among the optional updates.
