task bar

running xp pro, have come back off holiday to find that my task bar and start button are grey, luckily not greyed out, and clicking on start shows the start menu is white background with black text although the program icons appear fine, the my son and daughter deny that they have changed anything and cannot say what happened, they have not installed or uninstalled anything, I have tried a system restore to before I went away but it is still the same, it is not causing any problems, I just wondered what has happened, look forward to suggestions with interest/trepidation

Right click the desktop choose Properties\Appearance
Make sure 'Windows XP Style' is selected under Windows & Buttons

Hi, under Windows and Buttons did you click on the little black drop-down arrow to see if you have XP Style?
