Windows 7: Had themes working fine, then screen went black save for icons !

Had themes working fine, then screen went black save for icons !

I don't know if this happens on a regular basis, but I have been
downloading updates from MS and was using the Dark Skies theme
from MS. All was working fine. They were shuffling, etc, when all
of a sudden the desktop screen went black save the different icons
I have going. It looks much like the screen does when one is in
Safe Mode.

If any of you have had this problem, please enlighten on how you
remedied the situation.

Thank you in advance.

Opps. Never mind. It was all the updates. Took over control of the
unit. Pretty sure the HD is on it's way out. It's been slowing down
and no I don't have a virus. Just did a reformat and fresh install,
so it's the drive. I have a LOT of hrs on it. Oh well.

Thanks for looking.
