Windows 7: Interface Bug

Interface Bug

Whenever I click at my network icon on the taskbar, it will of course show that box thing that shows your network connections but here is a screenshot of that box thing. I have to hide the name of my service provider.

The bug there is that the translucent border that is supposed to surround the box is missing. It had the translucent border before but now its gone and rebooting the computer does not fix that. It seemed to start happening since I changed the MenuShowDelay setting in the registry, I turned it back to the default value, the Menushowdelay is back to normal but that bug is still there. Anything I can do please???

First thought would be to quit screwing around in the registry... Otherwise, have you tried a system restore point prior to your editing?

Doing a system restore might remove some program updates. The same thing happens to my Action Center box if I click the Action Center icon in the taskbar but my volume mixer box still has the translucent border. No other problems that I know of besides that.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (XP, 98SE, 95, 3.11, DOS 7.10 on VM) + Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx

did you set it back the default value of 400?
best bet would be to do a system restore.

btw, its not an "Interface Bug" in the true sense

Yes, I changed the MenuShowDelay value back to 400. I had to call this topic an interface bug cause I don't know what to call it though.
