Missing Buttons (close, maximize, etc...)

So, my buttons on the upper right window bar are missing?!

Only some programs.

So far:

Missing -
Explorer
BitComet
Photoshop
VLC Media Player

Not Missing -
Chrome

I'm totally baffled.

If you click in the general location of max, min, does it do anything?

**EDIT** Also, what if you change your theme. Does it reappear? Then change it back.

Functionality exists. They just are not visualized.

They return when a windows basic theme is used, but not an aero theme.

Did you add any themes or plug-ins recently to Chrome? I'm trying to figure out why Chrome is the only one not affected.

Yup, theme removed and the buttons are gone. This is very odd. *restarts computer*

So on Chrome the buttons were there. You removed the theme and the buttons disappeared????

Not a solution but if you would rather, you can use the ALT SPACEBAR key combo to access the functionality of those buttons.

Okay, so what has changed on your pc in the last few days? Would you consider restoring to a prior date?

Already restored to a prior date

I have uninstalled and checked "delete the driver" via device manager, and am downloading the latest driver for my integrated radeon.
