    All of a sudden, after my bride used my desktop, it looks like I have a new Windows Theme. I've gone through all the themes and settings, and can't get it back to normal.

    The screen is weird to say the least. All my folder icons are light yellow now.

    What's going on? I've ran SFC a few times with rebooting. Any way I can use a .bak Registry file to restore it? I can't even find that.

    I'm running Windows 10 as a upgrade from Windows 8.

    I'd quit trying to undo what she did and change the setting to my own liking. Then create an account on the PC for her to use.

    Screenshots? That might help us determine what she did.

    I'm just guessing here, but you did ask her then scold her for touching your rig right? My wife knows better. This is my machine.

    Turned out something funky happened to my old Acer monitor somehow. I did a reset, and viola! Looking good now!
