Windows 7: Tabs go tiny, lists and buttons go hidden after a restart

Tabs go tiny, lists and buttons go hidden after a restart

So the strangest things has happenned on my Win7 x64 -- the tabs are tiny in programs such as Task Manager. Also, text is hidden in buttons and lists. IE9 crashes with gmail. Other important screens also show the same hidden text behaviour. Luckilly, many programs do not have this bug. However, the system restore screens do have the bug... so it's near impossible to restore to an earlier point.

Also, earlier restore points were missing when I tried to access via that F8 / cmd prmpt method. Perhaps they are saved under a different account by the way HP setup the laptop.

Gmail is no big deal -- can access that via firefox (not IE9 or Chrome! right now). I'm more trying to get the core windows functionality back.
