Properties folder Problems???

Does anyone know why when i open the properties of my folders or other things have really tiny tabs at the top? None of the options buttons have no words. The boxes where you type into are either a tiny cube or a thin line. I have searched all over and cannot find anything on this. I am running Windows 7 and the problem just started. It also does the thin type in boxes on some websites. Can anyone help or has this happened with anyone else???

So you don't get the browse buttons in the little window that pops up?

If you are trying to drag something it will make that window move behind your browser.

You should get this,

I wish i could even that, then i might be able to get it on here. No, the buttons aren't there. The upload tabs are but not the browse. The best way i can describe it is the tabs at the top of the properties window are about an eighth of an inch square. the window runs from the top of my monitor all the way past the bottom of my screen and the buttons you use to accept changes or whatever ar wordless. Like when i download a program and you have the run, save or cancel window. Those buttons have no words.

That's alright, it probably has something to do with your original problem.

Have you tried updating your video card driver?

You can try running this,

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

See if it finds and fixes any corrupt files.

I went to the intel site and scanned my drivers there and they where up to date. Something has happened to where i have to run it as administrator to do the command prompt. Don't know why that has started happening. There has been no other user set up.
