Windows 7: Resources Monitor's GUI broken and unusable

Oh, no, Sowhaty! I'm sorry to have hijacked your post!

I've been rushing around (I uninstalled IE 11 3 times...!) and I didn't realize I had gone full circle with my research.

Here's how I fixed it: (as per Sowhaty's original post)

"...System settings, then click 'advanced' system settings)
then go to advanced tab, then performance settings.
Enable 'use visual styles on windows and buttons'(should be very last box)."

It worked. I havn't tried going back to disable it now. (It ain't broke... )

I certainly don't care about MSIE, either. But apparently, Amazon Video does. (A Silverlight issue). And....yeah...it's even less safe than the newer versions.

Alright, I'll look into the last few posts, but gotta say that since I fixed the issue by uninstalling that certain culprit update, I was reverted back to an older version of IE ... 8 or sth like that. IE11 was in my Windows Update and just for the heck of it I decided to update to it and see what happens. Well ... it messed up my Resource Monitor. How AMAZING!!!

Don't be so sorry for hijacking ... it's all good. was just saying that the culprit was already found. it's a trade-off btwn having visual styles off, having ie11 and resmon running ... would be nice to be able to marry the 3 of them, but for now that's a no go.

The point of this whole thread was to have Resmon working with visual styles disabled and at 125% scaling in 'Make text and other items larger or smaller'.

I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
