Weird look of windows

Hello,

How it actually look:


I have screen resolution of 1024x768 (resizing doesn't help), but it worked before with the same resolution.

Where did you get Win7 Enterprise? How do you plan to activate it?

You should have a better choice for screen resolution. Check optional Updates for newer drivers, or import the latest driver from the Display adapter's Support Downloads webpge.

Those windows don't look like any I've ever seen in Win7. Are you sure you installed Win7?

If you have installed a theme or otherwise tweaked or modified WIn7, I would roll back to before you did this using System Restore.

If there are no Restore Points available then clean reinstall Win7 following these general steps to get it perfect, and then don't tweak it again: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums

I have fresh reinstalled Windows 7 due to HDD failure (I have new HDD now), so I don't think that is a problem?
