Windows 7: IE10-32bit - browser and other windows backgrounds

I know that I can change the background via "Window Color", but when the color is white, why does the Seven Forums look like this?

I've reset IE10... any other suggestions that I can do via remote control?

OK, let's see.

Launch IE > Click the gear icon on the top right > Click "Internet Options"

Now click "Accessibility" under Appearance in the General tab.

Make sure everything is unchecked. Does that help?

Also click the 'Colors' button beside Accessibility and uncheck "Use window colors".

Thanks for the idea - I do not think that I've ever been inside of that window.

All settings are clear:

And I've reset IE via this...

Have you tried with the colors button as I mentioned in post #3?

Sorry - I missed that - we posted at the same time.

I unchecked that option
loaded the Seven Forums page
opened the option back up for the screenshot:

That option is checked by default. Unchecking it allows you pick colors to override what the web page wants to show you. This install of IE10 seems to be overriding the webpage colors via some other setting. If only I could find out which setting that is.

Thanks for your help. Please keep looking around. I could use another set of eyes on this.

Does this still happen when you switch to aero theme?

I'm not sure that this hardware can handle Aero.

I will check, but I'll have to tell TeamViewer not to turn Aero off... if I can turn it on.

If it can't handle Aero, switch to Basic theme atleast and see if it helps. I see the classic theme is in use. Seems there's something wrong with accessibility themes. Can't think of anything else. Check out "Ease of access" in control panel. There's something to do with the registry I suppose.

Thanks for the ideas. I did get it to go to Aero.

I had IE10 showing the Seven Forums in the background while the theme changed from classic to Aero. Making the switch seems to have fixed things... but I know that I tried that before.

I've already set it back to classic, saved the theme and deleted the old one. The Seven Forums' pages (and other pages) look normal. I'll test to see if it holds after a reboot... but I'll have to wait until Windows Update completes the .NET 4.5 patches.

It took a very long time to uninstall the 19 .NET updates and .NET4 itself. Maybe one of those uninstalls did something unexpected to the way the theme change acted this time. Dell's add-on for detecting the laptop's service tag claimed that the .NET 4 install was bad - hence the move to .NET 4.5.

Edit: IE10 looks fine - even after a reboot.

Edit2: Dells add-on works with .NET4.5 :-)

Thanks so much for your help. I probably would not have tried the theme change again. The user does not need any of the accessibility features. I just found references to that causing issues with webpage backgrounds.
