HELP! Google Menu Bar (or Navigation Bar) has turned black
I''m using internet explorer, with basic Google. And today the menu bar (or navigation) bar has turned black - so I can''t read the labels of the buttons. The top bar (with the URL) is ok. But the next two bars (lines) are black.%0D\
I''ve now found various suggested solutions on the internet - but no explanation of what happened.%0D\
I''m trying this solution from a poster named fmfl:%0D\
As I read the replies I think all of us are dancing around the same answer, i.e., altering and reforming the Display. Here''s how I do mine:%0D\
1. Begin at the Desktop Startup Screen%0D\
3. All Programs%0D\
4. Control Panel%0D\
5. Accessibility Options%0D\
7. Check the Use High Contrast box%0D\
9. Uncheck the Use High Contrast box%0D\
11. Close Control Panel%0D\
12. Now everything will be normal (no black toolbars)%0D\
13. The next time you Startup you will have a 50-50 chance of no black toolbars. If they are black go back and do steps 1-11 again%0D
Will you guys help the OP? Don''t just sit there, and post stupid jokes!
Switch to the Chrome browser.
Please try Firefox or Google Chrome.
R1''s link seems to have a lot of good info.\
OP, if you''re using Windows XP, people at the link say you have to switch from "standard" or "classic" to "XP".\
But I agree that Chrome is better anyhow.

Well now it''ll never work.
Ask someone else whose isn''t black to print the bar from their computer and then tape it onto your monitor.
OP, how big is your toolbar?
Black Google bar has been displayed first time in Chrome with me, after re-install (didn%C2%B4t start youtube videos - black screen) it is all white and everything is o.k., in updated Opera it shows in black now, but when click for example: "translate", then the menu goes back into white, the differences are so irritating ...!

I have Windows XP and I use chrome. My Google bar is black, too. Time to go look for a fix.
As long as it is a legit thing, then fuck it.
Weird things have been happening in cyberspace lately.%0D\
First the United Airlines complete system shutdown, and after that, my system has been running slow.%0D\
Also, I have been getting "registry change" pop-ups when I use Datalounge, and now I also had the black google bar, as of yesterday.%0D\
Are hackers trying to bring the whole system down? Because something very weird is going on.
R22, read the link at R12 and one of your "problems" is solved.
after that, you might try readjusting the aluminum foil
LOL. It''s turned black for me too today but I think it looks better now.
It''s a new design, morons.
I don''t understand why OP says that he can''t read the labels of the buttons. For me (with Chrome), those are grey & clearly visible against the black background.
