Hi,
did you by any chance patch some system files to enable third-party themes to be used in Windows 7? Cause this surely looks like it.

I'm not sure, I'm not exactly an expert in this area which is why I've asked for some help.

Can you be specific ?

What is wrong with your Paint.

Your screenshot looks ok to me. It looks almost like mine except the Shapes section.

2 suggestions :

1. If it is a recent problem, do a system restore. Pick the date when your paint ribbon has the proper colour as your restore point.
System Restore

2. If system restore does not solve it, do a system file check. See if it will find any corrupt files and repair them if possible.
