Is the gray standard in Windows Starter? You should uninstall the theme, there are many poorly written Win 7 themes and corrupt it. It may be too that your system doesn't fully support themes.

Windows 7 basic is what you get with starter, that's why I was wondering where that theme came from, I have starter in a VM I'm playing with, I've changed the start button, but I'm curious about that theme.
