The ugly yellow icons

I know that windows 7 is great , but let us speak about the shell not the core

there are "things" that never changed since win 98
such as:
-the shape and ugly yellow color of icons
-menu of right click on desktop ,system properties ,msconfig.exe,.....

any one notice something else ?!!


I feel that win 7 came with new update of frustration !!

My icons aren't yellow, maybe your monitor is dirty.

Hell Danneb,

Perhaps you could post a screenshot to help clarify examples of what you are referring to about the icons. Otherwise everyone is just guessing. Hence the posts above.
