    Menu colour is different in certain programs (XP Home)

    I'm, for the moment, using XP Home edition with the original theme. After a while I found that programs like notepad, system information has problem with menu colour. In the original theme only the selected menu item should be white. In my case, if I scroll through the menu items they all become white and they will stay white. I have not changed anything regarding windows look (under advanced).
    In Internet explorer I don't have the problem mentioned above.

    If you mean the drop down list, mine is and always has been white.
    What color should they be?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Well, when I unfold(?) the drop down list it is white, and should be so (with XP theme). This is because it is the selected item on the menu. The menu itself with no item selected is some kind of beige colour. When I click on a menu item it changes colour to white as it is suposed to do, but when I scroll through other menu items they all change to white and they stay white, do not return to beige colour (not selected item). As I mentioned before it does not occur in IE 6.

    It seems like something happened to my standard XP theme. If I choose the tab next to screensaver (under Display), appearance? I have a non english OS, and changes from Windows XP to Windows classic and then back again it seems to correct the problem I mentioned earlier. But then this makes a change in theme, ie I have the possibility to save my change (just updated appearance) under a new theme name. That is OK and it seems to work. But the standard XP theme still have the problem with menu colour.

    If I save any changes to a theme there will be a file created. Is there any possibility to reinstall just Windows standard themes?
