Explorer Fonts/Windows Washed Out

Hi All

Been tinkering with custom themes and icons - it appears that I somehow corrupted my fonts and display. When I revert to using a dark theme, the fonts come out ok but if I use a light theme, what I get is as attached.
I've gone past the system restore stage

Look forward to any assistance you can offer

Thanks

Are you by any chance running an application called "fullglass.exe" when this happens?

Hi kucing/SG

You are both correct on the themes and full glass
What would be the best way to resolve the issue?

TIA

Fullglass does not work on themes that are not optimized for it. I suggest that you do not use it, especially not on light themes, where it's nearly 100% certain that it will not work.
Just go to your taskbar's system tray and kill the fullglass.exe

fullglass.exe works only on theme with black background if im not mistaken. im using it too and it goes smooth..fullglass wont work on theme with a white background which resulted in what you have right now. i might suggest a theme that suits the fullglass.exe which created by Mr Grim itself Midnight Glass Nature Theme by ~MrGRiM01 on deviantART

You are correct. It only works on themes with dark backgrounds All though they do not work on all of those either. I would advise only using fullglass.exe for those themes which it comes with or where you are advised to use it.

Hi Guys


Thanks for the response and appreciate your time.
Sorry for responding late - my connection has been a little flaky these past few weeks.

Understood and thanks again

Regards

[Update: Unloaded Full Glass from the SysTray - all is normal - thanks again]
