In the future, try to come up with better categories for your questions than "bug". It's to your own advantage. – Joel Coehoorn Oct 8 '11 at 17:14

Start Menu then type Personalization and click it. From that window click Window Color then click Advanced appearance settings.

From there choose Selected Items in the drop-down box and choose a nicer Color1 and also set the Color below from white to something that has contrast.

Updated: Alternatively just click the Windows 7 Aero theme from the Personalization window to reset all the theme colors and options.
