Windows 7: Safe Mode/Windows 98 Appearance

Safe Mode/Windows 98 Appearance

I have a laptop with Windows 7. I left my laptop on for a few hours with the top closed. When I opened it up, I tried my mouse and it was jerky and moving really slow. I tried to ctrl alt del, but it did not do anything. I ended up having to press the button to turn it off. When it came back on, I chose to open in Safe Mode. Then I restarted. Now, my bottom toolbar looks like it's still in safe mode (windows 98 looking), some of the web pages i visit (hotmail) look weird. I have rebooted, I have checked msconfig and safe mode is not checked. I have pressed f8 and started in safe mode again; shut down (instead of restarted like I did the first time) and it's still this way. I hope you can help.
Thanks

Right clik on the desktop, go in Personalize. Choose one of the aero themes that come with Windows. Then personalize further if needed...
