I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to ask such a question, but i'm hoping someone can help me in any case.

I have Office 2007 with the exception of Outlook 2007 installed on my pc. In addition to Office 2007, i have Outlook 2003 installed. Anyways my Office theme for all Office products and all versions looks like the "Ugly Classic Windows 2000 Theme". How do i get my office to appear correctly. My OS theme is set to Windows XP. My themes service is started. I don't have any video driver conflicts. I've searched and searched on the net and have found nothing that helps. Re-imaging PC is not an option.

If anyone can provide me with any type of help at all, i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Besides Outlook 2003, isn't secretly the entire 2003 Office suite installed? So that it might be you're starting Word 2003 etc. instead of their respective 2007 versions?

Look in Device Manager for SMS Mirror driver under Display Adapters and delete or disable it and then reboot.
