    User settings screen messed up


    I recently got a new computer, and most of windows 8 is pretty cool. But when I try to go to my user settings, I get a messed up screen. Does anyone know why it looks like this? Occasionally this sort of messed up screens happens with the other full screen windows 8 apps too.
