Windows 7: Resource Monitor window is totally transparent.

Resource Monitor window is totally transparent.

I seem to be the only person on the planet with this precise problem. I have no other computer issues, but when I open Resource Monitor, I can see the window frame with the title at the top and the three (File, Monitor, Help) buttons below it. The body of the window, however is totally empty and transparent ( I can see my desktop wallpaper through it). Nothing I try adds any content to the window. I don't have a clue except that maybe I have disabled a service that I am unaware that Resource Monitor requires.

I just thought I would give you guys a shout before I unnecessarily waste a bunch time and effort on something that isn't actually the problem and possibly make things worse for what might have otherwise had a simple and easy fix.

How long has this been going on? Have you tried a system restore to before this started? Have you tried running a sfc/scannow?

It's a fairly new system. Just been a few weeks. I haven't tried system restore. Since it's not really a seriously prohibitive issue, I would prefer to discover the root of the problem directly if I can. I think I can learn and remember more that way. Throwing together some hardware is vastly easier than learning all the soft details of what makes it go, but I enjoy the ride.

Okay, I ran scf /verifyonly and "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

Since it looks like it isn't a known issue, I guess I'll go through all the disabled services, enable them one at a time and see if that's possibly the source of the problem. Any other ideas for pinpointing the problem would be appreciated.

Open Windows Explorer and up in the search box type "wdc" (without quotes). Post a snip of the screen. I think you probably deleted some manifest files. Have you been running CCleaner?

Forgot to mention:
Click on your C drive in the left pane first before searching.

Don't know if this might help, but some seem to have had some trouble because of an update

If it was my computer I would do a repair install next. I don't know if will fix a bad update. My reasoning behind this is. If such a problem is happening their could be more problems you haven't noticed yet. I and a few billion people have all their Windows 7 updates without this problem.
