Windows 7: Low disc space partition colour restore

Low disc space partition colour restore

Hi guys,

I recently ran a dreadful programme called Premium Clock (beware!) which, without being asked, changed all the default fonts and colours on my PC (Windows 7 x 64). I've managed to restore most of them, but the bars in My Computer which should turn red to show low disc space stay black, however low the space is. (I know some folks don't like this, but I find it useful.) Can anyone suggest how I get the red colour back? I've tried system restore, but it doesn't work.

Many thanks.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Hi dances and Welcome to SevenForums

If you can't use sys restore, then try putting Win 7 dvd in and do a repair install

Thanks for the suggestion, but my PC came with Windows 7 pre-installed, so I don't have the discs.

I made a set of recovery discs, but they seem to want to restore the entire system, which will delete all the programmes I've installed since I bought the computer.
