overnight settings change

This morning, I booted up only to find my classic windows colours changed into XP ones. I looked for malware, but spybot and windows defender found nothing unusual.

Can anyone explain what might have happened and if it is a sign of a serious fault, what do I need to do?

This is the first time this has happened since I got the desktop, two years ago. I have been watching you tube videos recently, but downloaded nothing. I run Norton firewall and antivirus.

Best wishes
Google did not enlighten me.

An update loading in the background- has reverted the system to default.
such an update could be from
M/S or Norton or any other program that supplies regular updates.
Simply revert to the way you want it and carry on regardless.
