Have you tried re-patching your system to see if that helps??

The problem isnt you, its most likely the theme. They probobly built it on something that wasnt the current build of 7, or an update messed with it.

Have you applied any theme with dark explorer background alingwith the fullglass.exe enabled ? It seems from your screenshot. If my assumption is right, go to your system trey notification area, exit fullglass, and reopen (not restart) explorer. The hazy yellow font problem will be fixed.

I've had the same problem......however on my windows 7 x32 the themes work fine so i think the compatability with your x64 is the problem.
