There's a few things that may cause this, so we might have to try a bit of trial and error.
First, try right-clicking My Computer, and selecting Properties. On the advanced tab, click the first Settings button.
Check the item that optimizes for best appearance. Then try right-clicking the desktop > properties, and re-select the nicer theme.

computer that had been infected by malware/virus would usually give you what kind of issue.

I am pretty sure I have no virus or malware issues. The computer is just back from the 'shop' after having a new MB installed. It had the fancy green start button on the task bar. I know I have made a change to get the dull gray button but I can not undo it or for that matter remember what I did to change it....
scary huh! I tried what you suggested Deon and there was no change.
Would it be a theme change that I am look for? When I access the Display Properties in the drop down I have WINDOWS CLASSIC, MY CURRENT THEME, MORE THEMES ON LINE, and BROWSE. Nothing there works. Under the Appearance tab I have WINDOWS CLASSIC under Windows and Buttons drop down.
I recall having this same problem about 2 years ago but of course I can not remember the fix.
I am positive it is not a malware/virus problem. I'll just never learn to leave things alone.

Go to Properties
The I believe you should see a customize or classic buttons.
Try this and let us know what you find.

Good job investigating and correcting the problem.
Come back anytime even if it is just to visit.

Was going to recommend the services.msc fix, and then a registry tweak.
Well anyway, good to hear you got it sorted
