Black Navigation Bars in Explorer. HELP!
When I run Explorer or right click on a folder IN exploer and select "open in new window" I get this:
HOWEVER, when I open explorer from another process (say "open this location in explorer" in an application) OR I right click on a folder in Explorer with shift held down and select "open this location in another process"...
I get this:
Does anyone know why explorer should be acting like this when it's launched from another process. Obviously it looks a damn mess and something isn't as intended. I'm signed in with Administrator privileges and I have UAC turned off, so I can't see how its got anything to do with security permissions, but here it is and there you go.
I've tried everything I can to stop this. I've tried switching to the basic scheme and back again, I've tried loading up this Windows 7 "default" Aero theme. It does this in every single theme (except basic - with no Aero function).
I hope no ones going to tell me "this is how its supposed to look - it's just to warn you that explorer was launched from a different process" because that would be outstandingly bad... (A.K.A The dotted navigation box around icons in the Aero theme is supposed to be there for keyboard navigation - even though it looks a mess and the Aero theme has its own lovely shaded box and it isn't needed.... problem).
Another M$ Windows 7 GUI bug?
If I find any more I'm dumping this Windows 7 and going to switch to Hackingtosh Snow Panther (with all updates applied).
