Are you using any custom themes or have you customized your advanced window settings. Most of the color settings are in there.

Control Panel (All Items) > Personalization > Window Color (Bottom) > Advanced

Check your "Alt" button. That's what happen when you press your "Alt" button... It got highlighted blue...

I'm positive, that's what it do when you press "Alt", maybe your "Alt" button is stuck, or some application invoke the "Alt" button... Why don't you try pressing the "Alt" button when you see that blue highlight... See what happens...

Yes I know how it's supposed to look... Maybe you can do this, boot up your computer WITHOUT a keyboard, see if explorer still do that.
