IE8 black toolbars on Windows XP

  1. I know this has been dealt with before, but it still happens occasionally.
    Okay, I reset to Windows Classic and it's back to normal.

    The only trouble is, every so often, it reverts to black. I can deal with it
    but I'd like to cure it.

    Has anybody any ideas, please?

  2. To the best of my knowledge there is no cure.

    I believe that it is due to certain items loading out of sequence. While
    they work, the result if the black bar.

    Sometimes a warm start is all I need to do. Otherwise I reset the desktop
    theme back to Windows Xp then immediately reset back to my classic theme
    and preferred desktop image and screen saver.
