Windows 7: Right-click menu bar

Right-click menu bar

Hi. When I right click on an icon on my desktop for instance, it doesn't look like the Windows 7 version. See pictures. The first one is what it looks like for me, and the second is one is one I found on this site of what it should look like. I'm not talking about the content in the menu, but the aesthetics. For me, it only looks like the first picture when I right click on an icon on my desktop. But if I just right click on my desktop, it shows it correctly. It's not a big deal, really. I'm just wondering if there's a quick way to fix this. Thanks in advance!

Also, if this isn't the right folder, if someone could please move it for me or just tell me where to post this. I wasn't sure so I just posted in General Discussion. Thanks again.

Hi there, and thanks for replying. I have AVG Internet Security 9 (It has anti-virus and all that good stuff within it).

Also, since it seems like you know a little about AVG, I thought I could ask you another question: How can I prevent it from obstructing some of my torrent downloads? Sometimes I get the "the requested operation cannot be performed on a file with a user-mapped section open" error on utorrent and I know it's because of the resident shield being on. It only happens on like one out of 100 torrents.

Also, sorry again, but I recently encountered a more serious problem, https://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tml#post485595
if you could please take a look for me. Sorry for the trouble. :\

Uinstall AVG, use the removal too, and install Microsoft Security Essentials.

But I like AVG! It's one of the best overall anti-virus programs, IMHO. There's no way around that?

Doesn't look like it. Suites are mostly unnecessary now - use MSE. It will never expire and is completely free, it just requires validation.

Well, I mean I've never had problems with AVG and it's set to expire on 2018. It's a full version. I'll take a look at MSE though. Is a freeware security program really better than a full paid version of AVG?

Its Mircrosoft - you get the basics and nothing else but do you really use the extra features such as identify etc?

I have yet to find an independent rating of MSE's performance, so I can't answer that, but if AVG is causing problems, I would definitely look for an alternative, paid or not.

It's built by the same company as the OS, so it should be optimized to a level no third-party application can reach.
That, and I'm betting it will be bundled into Windows 8 (except in Europe)
