Blackened Toolbar in IE8

    I installed IE8. I am running Windows XP with Windows Classic colour scheme.
    After each restart and also sometimes without a restart, the toolbar in IE
    turns black and I cannot see the toolbar menus. Each time this happens, I can
    fix the problem by going to the Appearance tab in Display Properties and
    reselecting the Windows Classiccolour scheme.

    It is very annoying. Is there a permanent fix to this problem or should I go
    back to IE7?.

    Don't use the Classic scheme.
