Windows 7: Menus have turned Grey - but used to be white

Menus have turned Grey - but used to be white

Various menu's in my Windows 7 Home Premium install have turned an ugly grey colour, such as the right click menu, and in particular, the print menu - whereas they used to be white - any idea on how to change them back? (not system restore)

Many thanks

Right Click on Desktop > Personalize > Window Color > In this dialog menu, you should be able to find an option that changes the background of your windows.

Many Thanks - I clicked on the Advanced settings, and changed the Colour of the '3D Objects' item to white (it was a dark grey colour before) and it worked! - Thanks for your help.
