Drop down options blocked out in solid black

When I click on my desktop to get options panel, e.g. to refresh, all the options appear as usual, but when I use mouse to select an option, they are all immediately blocked out in solid black. This is just an example, but the same happens with every dropdown menu. I'd appreciate any help in resolving this issue. Thanks

The issue has now resolved itself!! Still don't know what happened - or why!

First thing is to restart the machine start menu - power - Restart (not shutdown)

If still the same then open command prompt or windows powershell (admin) and run

sfc /scannow

exit the window and restart again see what happens after that.
