    Windows not displaying tool bars and pop up boxes correctly.

    Hi everyone,
    Newbie here. I'm having a bit of an issue with my Dell Latitude E6410 Laptop.

    It runs Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit, 4GB ram, i5 processor.

    The issue started when I upgraded to windows 10 (Yip). Windows 10 was working 99% but I had a issue where the touch pad sometimes didn't work so was sluggish. So I decided to roll back to Windows 7. After this was done my laptop wouldn't connect to the internet anymore (Something about the LAN driver not working). So I couldn't figure this out so I took it back to the shop I brought it off and they reinstalled the OS again (and wiped everything I had without a back up in the process!).

    So I've spent the last week re installing all my programs and getting it all up and running again.

    But here's where it gets weird! On programs like iTunes, Paint, and some of the explorer screens none of the tool bar icons etc are displayed.

    Here are some examples





    Anyone got any ideas whats causing this? I'll take the laptop back to the store, But I've spent all I can on it at the moment, So if you guys and gals help me fix it for free I will feel so much better

    Thanks in advance to anyone who offers advise.

    Then from an elevated Command Prompt, run
    sfc /scannow

    Thanks Jerry, I don't think this program actually fixed the problem, But downloading it and follow step one (Full Battery Reset) appear to have fixed the problem. I'm running tweaking right through anyway just to see if it picks up anything else.

    First post, with a fast reply that fixed the problem! Great Forum everyone. I hope I'll learn some more secrets from you all in the future

    One of the steps leading up to "Run Repairs" in "Windows Repair" is "sfc/ scannow".

    During the past few weeks I am seeing many customers w/ Win7 systems exhibiting strange behaviours since the release of Win10, even though they haven't "reserved" Win10. Overall I suspect that there is something in the more recent Win7 updates (July15 & Aug15) that has caused these problems, but have not been able to pinpoint any cause.

    On my main Win7 PC (as in my signature) I have disabled the GWX tasks and added the "DisableOSUpgrade" reg. hack (as detailed in several other threads) and have had no problems since. But on other two of my Win7 systems I have not disabled the GWX tasks or added the reg. hack and have so far seen no problems on those systems.
