Windows 7: PaintShop Pro=Color scheme has been changed to windows 7 basic

PaintShop Pro=Color scheme has been changed to windows 7 basic

Hi group (my first post).

I've been using PaintShop Pro ver 9 (pre-Corel) for many years. When I open the program in my new computer, I get this message:

"The color scheme has been changed to windows 7 basic."

The program seems to run fine. Is there some setting I should tweak to make Windows happier about PSP9?

I'm not using a Windows theme. My desktop background is a grid (white lines on black; I position my icons within the squares). Please let me know if there are other setting you need to know.

HP Pavilion 500-281 desktop 64 bit; Windows Home Premium.

Thanks,
SBee

P.S. Just noticed something: when PSP is running, websites have a solid-blue border; if I close PSP, the borders instantly become transparent.

Hi and thanks lets see what's loading on startup,
Use Clean boot,
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/179159-troubleshoot-application-conflicts-performing-clean-startup.html
Click Start and type in the search box,
msconfig
Click on the suggestion on top or hit the Enter key,
Go to the Startup section and take some screen shots for a complete list,
Go to the Services section and on the bottom left Check the box to Hide All Microsoft services,
Repeat the screen shots,
Cheers.

Clean boot? I must have missed that recommendation. Will Google on how to do it and let you know the results.

Thanks

Clean boot didn't help. Opening PaintShop Pro while in clean boot still resulted in the color scheme being changed to windows 7 basic, and the transparent window borders switching to solid/opaque.
