    Right-click menu for taskbar icons is broken -pic included


    Hi,



    I have a computer set up with Windows 8.1 freshly installed. When I right click on any item in the taskbar, the dropdown (context?) menu graphics seem to be broken. The pin icon is out of proportion and text is hard to read because it is black text on a dark background.



    Have downloaded all updates - no resolution.

    Changed themes (high-contrast themes for example) - no resolution.



    Any ideas?

64397As you can see when I click on the apps on my task bar they appear grey and the unpin button and close button are massive and in the wrong place I did a clean install of 8.1 last night/this morning but this happened and I don't really want to have to do another factory reset.

Solved Bugged right-click menu icons in Software and Apps
I really don't know what happened by for some reason, all the icons on the right-click menu changed into rectangle boxes. Been googling and searching forums for similar issues but found nothing, and it's really bugging me. :( Screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/eRB4F.png
